Last week was a busy, busy week. From birthdays (including my own 🎉) to engagements and BBQs to Christmas in July parties, it's safe to say that I did more socializing in the past 14 days than usual. I almost needed vacation. 😋
I kid, I kid.
Anyway, what I did need was a little something to show up to the party with; I didn't want to arrive empty-handed. So, naturally, I threw my baking cap on and whipped up something that was tasty and crowd-satisfying, yet also fun and unique!
Spiked Apple Ale Cupcakes, Anyone?
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cupcake pan with paper liners. In one bowl, combine dry ingredients and whisk together. In another bowl, cream butter, sugar, and syrup until fluffy, then add vanilla, egg, and ale. Combine both dry and wet ingredients carefully. Mix well. Fill cupcake liners with batter until about 3/4 full. Bake for 23-25 minutes. Meanwhile, combine all cream cheese ingredients together in a bowl and blend until fluffy. When the cupcakes are baked and cooled, top them with frosting. Enjoy!
Price Chopper was my go-to shop for all of the recipe's ingredients, including the boozy-booze. The fact that Redd's could be purchased in a grocery store still blows my mind #PAgirlproblems. When I am in my hometown and plan to make "spiked" recipes, I have to make various pit stops to gather all of the ingredients. I, however, don't mind stopping at some of my local favorites, Kraftwork, Frankford Hall, or the Johnny Brenda's. 😉
My friends and family don't mind stopping with me too. An invite for good food and drink is a no-brainer.
Thanks, Price Chopper, Miller-Coors, and Collective Bias for this opportunity! #ad
