Beer and Chocolate Cupcakes Recipe

Hola Amigos! Happy Weekend to all of you especially to all the fathers this Sunday. Today I'm sharing with you the perfect dessert to serve dad on his special day, but also for summer BBQs , birthdays or gatherings with friends this grilling season! My beer and chocolate cupcakes for the beer lover in your house...never forgetting some chocolate for the lady behind the man!

I have tried this recipe several times  I found  it a while back  in a little insert that came with a specialty beer set I got my hubs a few Christmas ago, it's pretty straight forward and since then I've changed the taste of the cupcakes by using different flavored beers. This is my adaptation to the original recipe.

Beer and Chocolate Cupcakes

1 stick Butter, softened
1 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa
2 Eggs
1/2  tsps Salt
1/2 tsps Baking Soda
1/2 tsps Baking Powder
1 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup Flavored Beer, I used Leinenkugel's Berry Weiss
1/2 Cup Water
1 tsps vanilla extract
Heat up your oven at 325 degrees and place liners on a 12 cupcake baking pan. Set aside.
Mix together butter, brown sugar and cocoa until everything is well integrated. Add eggs one at a time and mix everything at medium speed. 
In a separate bowl, whisk together the salt, baking soda, baking powder and flour until everything is well combined.
In another bowl mix beer, water and vanilla.
Now it's time add wet and dry ingredients to the chocolate batter. First liquid, followed by dry in an alternate way while mixing on medium speed. Repeat the procedure until all the ingredients are mixed.
Spoon this mix on the lined cupcakes  3/4  full. Bake for 18-20 minutes until a toothpick in the middle comes clean. 

1 Cup of Butter
2 TBSP Flavored Beer used above
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
2 TBSP Heavy Cream
1 Tsp Vanilla.
Beat this ingredients together until fluffy and ready to spread over cooled cupcakes.


Since I'm really bad at decorating, I found these delicious gummy "smoochies" and added a touch of whimsy to my cupcakes!

Aren't they a cute way of giving daddy a kiss?

You can really taste this particular beer on the cupcakes and the icing...in fact it intensifies the chocolate flavor! Yummm!

Give your husband a Big Chocolate Smooch this Sunday!

Wishing all the Fathers a wonderful Father's Day full of love and laughter.
Always keep in mind my friends, that everything tastes better with a Pinch of Love!...and a beer!
