Bottoms Up! Irish Cream Hot Fudge Cupcakes are perfect for St. Patrick’s Day parties. The recipe calls for a lot of Bailey’s Irish Cream incorporated into each component of the dessert and even utilizes the tiny Bailey’s bottles. The cake is a great deal like a brownie but less dense, the ganache is rich, and the frosting features more Irish Cream as well. The Irish cream hot fudge sauce is served in the mini Bailey’s bottles in the middle of the cake.

You don’t have to Irish to celebrate St. Patrick’s day – or eat these cupcakes – but you should be an adult, thanks to the liquor in the recipe. The cupcakes are a red velvet recipe that has been altered to use green food coloring instead of red, in order to match the holiday. After baking, an edible chocolate liquor cup is inserted into the top of each cupcake. Top them with an Irish whiskey cream cheese frosting, and then fill the chocolate liquor cups with green beer before serving.
