Chocolate, bourbon, pecan pie, cupcakes, butter pecan frosting. Do we really need to say anything else to convince you to pull out a mixing bowl? These adult goodies may be more on the complicated side of the kitchen, but the finished product, essentially tiny bourbon pecan pies with chocolate crust, is worth twice the effort, easy. Be sure to allow enough time for the chocolate cake bases to cool, and in the meantime, get to whisking the yummy pecan pie filling that makes this recipe perfect for Thanksgiving festivities.

These Father’s Day cupcakes fit that perfectly. They are decorated with edible Royal Icing beer mugs and chocolate frosted “dad’s.” They are also made of chocolate, with a can of Guinness thrown in.

Gingerbread is a holiday classic, although the addition of Guinness stout to the batter turns these into a tasty, yet adults-only holiday goodie. The cupcake batter is flavored with ginger (both candied and ground), molasses, cloves, cinnamon, and the aforementioned Guinness stout. The frosting is a standard buttercream, except for the addition of lime juice, which complements the flavors in the stout well. Add on a few pieces of candied ginger or other trimmings to make these look nice, as well as taste great!
