Pretzel Stout Cupcakes

Pretzel Stout Cupcakes

With warmer weather comes a surplus of patio and balcony parties. We’re donning tank tops, drinking cool beers and forgetting we ever needed those heavy jackets. And pretzels are the perfect companion to that beer. Even in cupcake form.

This genius recipe combines chocolate cupcakes with a stout brew and tops it all off with cream cheese frosting, pretzels and chocolate drizzle. If that’s not enough to round out a party, we aren’t sure what is!

Watergate Cupcakes

Watergate Cupcakes

Watergate Cupcakes are the cupcake version of the famous Watergate Salad made from pistachio pudding mix, pineapple, cool whip, and marshmallows and they are the perfect nostalgic treat.

The cupcake part is super moist with just a little texture contrast from the crushed pineapple. Both the flavor of the pistachio and pineapple are evident, but not overpowering. A green cupcake covered in marshmallow fluff frosting. That’s super fun.

Sour Cream Rhubarb Cupcakes with Ginger Cream Cheese Frosting and Poached Rhubarb

If you’re anywhere near as obsessed with seasonal food as we are, you’ve no doubt seen that we are in high rhubarb season. From pies to crisps to ice cream – we’ve seen it all. But this recipe takes the (cup)cake.

Imagine sour cream cupcakes with a dose of rhubarb. Now top those cupcakes with homemade ginger cream cheese frosting and a dollop of poached rhubarb…who says you have to go out to have an elegant dessert?

Licorice Delight: Vanilla Almond & Anise Cupcakes

Licorice Delight: Vanilla Almond & Anise Cupcakes

If you’re not a fan of black jelly beans or licorice that isn’t red, you certainly won’t be the first person on the planet. But these anise cupcakes somehow manage to capture just enough of the licorice flavor to thrill the tastebuds instead of turning them off.

Think vanilla almond cupcakes topped with whipped vanilla bean frosting, spiked with just a touch of anise flavoring. It seems like these treats might be the perfect amount of sweet and the perfect amount of “I only need one.”

Pistachio Hot Fudge Cupcakes

Pistachio Hot Fudge Cupcakes

These little cakes are slightly high maintenance. Like really high maintenance. But in addition to Mother’s Day weekend, it’s also ice cream weather, so we’d say it’s totally worth it.

Fudgy brownie bottoms, pistachio gelato on top, cream cheese frosting (!!!), topped with gooey chocolate, crushed pistachios, sprinkles and cherries. Perfection.

These cupcakes are truly a match made in chocolate and Bailey’s heaven, pairing a devil’s food cake with Bailey’s chocolate filling, Bailey’s ganache and topped with a luscious, gold flaked Bailey’s truffle. Chocolate coma, anyone?

Dark Chocolate Cupcakes

Dark Chocolate Cupcakes

Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend, and we don’t know much that moms like more than chocolate. These dark chocolate cupcakes boast a deep, dark, intense chocolate flavor in each bite and are topped off with a swirl of dark chocolate buttercream frosting.

These cupcakes are so easy to whip together in one bowl and you get the most rich and fudgy cupcakes ever. Chocolate on chocolate on chocolate has to be the easiest way to Mom’s heart!

Pizza Cupcakes

Pizza Cupcakes

It’s Monday, and on Mondays, it’s totally acceptable to have cupcakes for dinner. Especially when they’re composed of pizza ingredients!

These little muffins have all the components you love about pizza: sauce, mozzarella, herbs and pepperoni, held together by a savory cupcake. It’s a very basic dough that is soft and almost spongy, which is perfect to soak up tomato sauce. Imagine what a biscuit would be like with all of those toppings and that’s pretty much what you are getting!

Coconut Cream Cupcakes

Ultra light, fluffy coconut cupcakes with a hint of sweet vanilla and loaded with coconut flavor, topped with a smooth coconut cream cheese frosting and all finished off with sweetened shredded coconut.

These yummy and arguably healthy (coconut is basically a superfood, right) cupcakes are the perfect treat to follow up brunch or indulge in after a Sunday afternoon nap.
