Guinness Chocolate Cupcakes

Guinness Chocolate cupcakes with Dulce de leche filling & Dulce de leche buttercream frosting.

Seems Guinness is popular all of a sudden. I wonder why??? :)
Now in my household we do not need St. Pattys to enjoy guinness.

There are always a few bottles stocked in the fridge. The ol’man is a fan, me… not so much.

But I do use it in some cooking and I make a little interesting drink … I will be posting later.

Anyway for a first time Guinness cupcake maker .. I thought it was nice … not grreat but nice … it worked well of course with the dulce .. but then again what doesn’t.

I cut a cone shape out of the middle of the cupcake and filled it with homemade dulce.

Genius .. I know.

I mean I could just leave the cupcake like this … I can poke my tongue in the middle .. .and call it a day.

Yes you can picture that … quite attractive indeed ;)

Ahhhh Dulce de leche … the things dreams are made of … creamy … sweet.

It definitely changed the cupcakes entirely. Gave them an added punch they needed.

I drizzled some lightened dulce sauce on top.

Oh. My.

I might have had like 10 2 … delicious!

The cupcakes were nice and moist and had the strong Guinness flavor.
