There’s little in this world that I love more than cupcakes. There’s little in this world that the Boy loves more than Guinness. And so when I stumbled across these Guinness Chocolate Cupcakes (#16) via Ming Makes Cupcakes I knew that I had to whip these out for the Boy’s birthday this past Thursday.


And oh my, are these one of the best cupcakes I’ve ever tasted! And to think that they came out of my own oven! Le gasp! Really though, they’re perfectly chocolatey without being overbearingly sweet; the cream cheese frosting helps balance out the sweetness and the Guinness makes it all malty and rich and, well, stout like. This could easily become my staple chocolate cupcake!
