So I have a thing for chocolate, booze and baked goods in paper cups. The other day I found a recipe for Chocolate Guinness Cupcakes with Bailey's icing, perfect for St.Patrick's Day treats for the kids at work. The original recipe was basically an Irish Car Bomb in cupcake form with an Irish Whiskey ganache in the center. I opted to skip this part because the cupcake sounded pretty rich already. I cut the sugar by a 1/3 of a cup and made chocolate icing with Bailey's instead of the regular white icing, then added a sprinkle of green sugar. It kind of looks like chives. Nugget said it looked tacky. I said "You're tacky. Go to bed." Then I drank the rest of the Guinness and licked the icing spatula.
