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.

Manly cupcakes may sound like an oxymoron, but these salty, caramel-ly and chocolate-y treats are the perfect things to serve in a man-cave or living room. The batter contains beer, cocoa powder, flour, sugar, salt and a few other traditional ingredients. The frosting a salted caramel buttercream, complete with sea salt and brown sugar. Add a little extra garnish to the top by crushing up a few pretzels and sprinkling them onto the frosting before serving — alongside a few cold beers!

Serve up something sweet and light at your next St. Patrick’s Day party – these Guiness Stout Cupcakes! Yes, the batter contains 1 and a half cups of Guiness Stout, as well as more traditional staples like flour, sugar, cocoa powder and eggs, among other things. Following the theme, the frosting contains alcohol as well — Irish Cream — made into a buttercream frosting, thanks to the addition of butter and sugar. Top each with a sprinkle of sugar (or green sprinkles) and a plastic four-leaf clover to set the mood.
