Ingredients

2

1/4

1

1
cup water
3
tablespoons unsweetened baking cocoa
1/2

1

Pecan halves for garnish, as desired

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 325°F. Place paper baking cups in 24 regular-size muffin cups.
  • 2 In large bowl, mix flour, granulated sugar and salt with whisk. Set aside.
  • 3 In 1-quart saucepan, heat 1 cup butter, the water and 3 tablespoons baking cocoa to boiling. Remove from heat, and pour into flour mixture. Mix to combine. Add buttermilk, baking soda, vanilla, 2 tablespoons bourbon and the eggs; mix well to combine. Fold in chopped pecans. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups, filling two-thirds full.
  • 4 Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • 5 Meanwhile, make Icing. In 1-quart saucepan, heat 1/2 cup butter, 3 tablespoons baking cocoa and the milk to simmering. Remove from heat; beat in powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon bourbon. Spoon warm icing over warm cupcakes. Top with pecan halves.
Tips  

Be sure to glaze the cupcakes while still warm, and adhere the pecan garnish while the glaze is still wet.

These cupcakes are best once cooled to room temperature. They can be made a day ahead, and cooled cupcakes can be stored in an airtight container.

While the bourbon is a totally delicious addition, feel free to leave it out if you prefer.
