For an adults-only treat, try these chocolate beer cupcakes with whiskey filling and Irish cream icing. While they would be the perfect things to serve on St. Patrick’s Day, they also work well with barbecues, wedding showers and other adult parties. The filling is made from mixing whiskey and melted butter together, and the frosting is a buttercream that also contains Irish cream liquor. The cupcakes themselves have stout beer in them, turning these treats into a festival of fun!

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.
