Eggnog cupcakes – how holiday! But add a bit o' booze, and now you've got a jolly holiday!
Come Christmastime, the eggnog is well-stocked in our house. I love to make my own homemade eggnog with a splash of rum and extra cinnamon.Itʼs such a wonderful treat! The flavor of eggnog just gets me in the holiday spirit.
This year, I decided to experiment with making eggnog cupcakes from a Betty Crocker vanilla cake mix. The holidays are so busy and sometimes you need a quick dessert to bring to a party. Adding a cup of eggnog to boxed ingredients is an easy way to customize cupcakes!
I also added some rum to the whipped vanilla icing, inspired by my love for sipping homemade eggnog. You can add a dash of cinnamon to the top for garnish.
Here's how to make them:
Add all of the ingredients (except rum and frosting) into a mixing bowl and blend well.
Bake cupcakes in a standard cupcake pan for about 10-15 minutes until the cupcakes are cooked in the center.
Combine the rum and frosting.
With a mixer, whip the frosting until it's light and fluffy.
Then put it in a piping bag to frost. An easy way to get the frosting into a piping bag is to place the bag inside a cup, then spoon the frosting in.
Cut a small hole in the corner of the bag and pipe onto the cupcakes.
Garnish with sprinkles or cinnamon, if you prefer – and get ready to make some spirits bright!
