Mocha-Rum Candy Cupcakes
|Mocha-Rum Candy Cupcakes |
Forget the fruitcake; pass on the plum pudding. The verdict's in: if it ain't chocolate, it ain't dessert. Here's a full-size, grown-up version of those cherry, candy-sprinkled cupcakes that everybody's mom made.
1 box good-quality chocolate cake mix
4 oz strong coffee
2 oz dark rum
1 spray can of real whipped cream (or make it yourself)
Assorted candy of your choice: red and green shake-on sugar crystals, holiday M&Ms, multicolored sprinkles, etc.
Mixed nuts (no relatives, please) to surround cake on serving plate
Follow directions on cake package, substituting the coffee and rum for 6 ounces of liquid specified. Frost finished cakes with whipped cream and decorate with candies. Or let your guests play Picasso and do the decorating themselves.
