Chocolate Beer Stout Cupcake Recipe With Homemade Irish Cream Icing

beer cupcakesI threw a big 40th Beer Bash Birthday party for my husband this weekend and these Chocolate beer stout cupcakes were a HIT!  I loved how super simple they were to make!    And don’t worry, you don’t actually taste the stout beer-it just makes them SUPER moist!

Chocolate Beer Stout Cupcakes With Homemade Irish Cream Icing

Cupcake Ingredients:

  • 1 Box Betty Crocker Devils Food Cake Mix
  • 1 1/4 Cups of Stout Beer (I used Guiness)
  • 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
  • 3 Eggs

Irish Cream Icing:

  • 4 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Crisco Shortening
  • 1/2 Cup Softened Butter
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 4-5 Tablespoons of Irish Cream Liqueur
  • Chocolate Syrup

 

Directions:
1.  Preheat oven to 350 and put cupcake liners in baking pan.
2.  Beat together cupcake ingredients in bowl on low speed for about 30 seconds and then medium speed until well blended.
3.  Divide batter into cupcake pan and bake 18-20 minutes or until done.
4.  In a big bow, beat butter and Crisco on low speed until mixed smooth.  Continue mixing and add powdered sugar one cup at a time.
5.  Continue beating while adding vanilla and Irish cream liqueur and mix until smooth.
6.  If you have a decorating bag and tip you can pipe the frosting on the cooled cupcakes or use a Ziploc bag with a whole cut in the corner.
7.  Drizzle with chocolate syrup.

These turned out amazing and people were grabbing 2 at a time so I was happy I doubled the recipe!  To save my waistline, I am sending in the extras to Chris’s work tomorrow!

Halloween Party Recipes: Halloween Dipped Pretzels

dipped pretzels

Everyone loves dipped pretzels but not many like the hassle of melting chocolate.  I have found a solution to this dilemma that everyone raves about.  In fact, I made these at the beginning of the school year last year and my son’s teacher requested them for every party for the remainder of the year!  The awesome thing about these Halloween Dipped Pretzels is that you can use this recipe for ANY holiday or occasion, just change the colors of the sprinkles and frosting!

Halloween Dipped Pretzels:

Materials:
Pretzel Rods
Canned Frosting (your choice)
Sprinkles (to fit your holiday)

Directions:
1.  Open frosting at room temperature (do NOT use refrigerated frosting, your pretzel will break).
2.  Dip pretzel in frosting and swirl until about half of it is covered.
3.  Cover frosting with sprinkles and enjoy!

How easy is that?  These literally take me less than 10 minutes to make an entire class set!

Free Book: 50 Cheap Healthy Meals!

cheap healthy

Cheap and healthy?  I’ll take it!

Right now you can get the book 50 Cheap Healthy Meals – Easy Vegetarian Recipes On a Budget for FREE on your Kindle or Kindle Fire. Don’t have a Kindle device? No problem-simply download this appto read the book on your phone, PC, or iPad.

Of course most people know the importance of consuming a healthy diet, but people always see drawbacks. Some people believe it is too expensive, there is not enough variety in the meals or that they need the extra sugar, meat and other items they may cut out of their diet.
First of all, let me assure you that there are many easy vegetarian recipes that are also cheap in nature. You do not have to spend extra money in order to eat a healthier and more balanced diet. In fact, by cutting out the expense of buying meat, you might actually spend less money than before.Variety is also another key factor to why people avoid natural foods in their diet. Many people mistakenly believe that having a vegetarian diet means that they will eat the same thing day in and day out and it all tastes bland. Of course this is a myth as well. There are many tasty options to choose from, some of which you will find in this vegetarian cookbook.People who eat healthy also tend to have more energy, as it is better for the body and easily for the body to work. Because of this you will not miss cutting out extra sugar and extra caffeine, if that is what you are relying upon for energy.

Do It Yourself Restaurant Pizza!

diy pizza collage

We are huge fans of pizza at our house…personally I would eat it every single day if my size would allow it!  We frequently make our own from either homemade crust, or by buying dough balls from local stores.  But when a friend told me that they go to their favorite pizzaria and buy dough balls to make their own pizza, well, let’s just say I HAD to try it!  I was suprised that it cost the same thing as the dough balls we buy at the store…I really thought it would be more.  We got a dough ball that was able to make an 18 inch pizza for only $2.99. Since this size pizza normally costs $13.99, we saved quite a bit!

Do It Yourself Restaurant Pizza

Ingredients:
Pizza Stone/Cooking Sheet
Restaurant Dough Ball
Sauce
Cheese
Your Desired Toppings

Directions:
1.  Heat stone in oven at 375.
2.  Spread dough onto stone (using some flour helps with this).
3.  Add Sauce, Toppings, and Cheese.
4. Bake until it’s to your desired crispness and cheese is melted. *Note* When we buy store bought dough, we have to precook the dough before adding sauce and toppings.  We did NOT have to do this with the restaurant dough.

In this book you will find colorful healthy dishes using simple ingredients and combining colorful healthy dishes using healthy ingredients and combine color texture and flavors. The dishes included in this book range for hot and spicy to delicate flavors using fish and vegetables.
One of the most important features of Chinese cooking is texture. Vegetables should remain crisp and rice and noodles should be treated like pasta and retain their bite after cooking. Ingredients such as bean curd are used for texture, even though have little flavor in themselves. Bamboo shoots and Chestnuts, are a common ingredient, are used only for texture.
The recipes in this book are great for entertaining; we love to make a buffet of Chinese dishes for family and friends. Enjoy Soups and Starters, Main dishes, Vegetables, Rice and noodles.
