Chocolate cupcakes filled with a bourbon and pecan blend make for an extremely tasty (and adults only) treat. The chocolate cupcake base is pretty standard: flour, cocoa powder, sugar, and a bunch of other ingredients that usually go into cake batter. The fun part is the filling. The filling is made from chopped pecans, chocolate chips, bourbon, vanilla extract and sugar, a few other things. The chips get melted and quite gooey – which is the whole point. Top with a pecan butter frosting, complete with more chocolate and more bourbon. Scrumtious and unforgettable!

Pecan Streusel stuffed cupcakes with Grand Marnier Buttercream minis are a pleasant flavor and texture surprise. Who would have thought that a moist and yummy vanilla cupcake, the perfect simple baked confection could be made any better? And yet, coring and stuffing this little beauty with toasted pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter streusel mix does in deed make it better. The Grand Marnier buttercream with orange zest is the perfect complement. Simple, but exciting.

Oatmeal Carmelita Cupcakes are a cupcake version of the old fashioned bar cookie by the same name. These are rich, moist, firm, sweet, and crunchy. While mouthwatering, they sport a whopping 59 grams of carbs per serving. Luckily one will satisfy your sweet tooth quite sufficiently. The oatmeal cupcake is dense and firm, filled with caramel and ganache and topped with nuts and streusel creating the perfect blend of flavors and textures.
