Cold weather requires a cupcake with some figurative “meat-on-its-bones.” These beer run cupcakes fit that bill nicely. They are flavored with cocoa powder and a dark stout beer, like Guinness, although they also contain sour cream, unsalted butter, eggs, flour, sugar, salt and baking soda. Once they’ve baked, top them with a homemade vanilla stout buttercream and some crushed chocolate covered pretzels. The double-dose of alcohol makes these an adults-only treat, but also one perfect for those chilly autumn days.
