Brrr… it’s cold outside! Pull on your fuzzy socks, pour yourself a steaming hot cup of coffee, spiked with a shot of Kahlua Liqueur and curl up under the blanket with one or two of these super yummy Kahlua Hot Chocolate Cupcakes. Oh, and you might want to wait until the kids are in bed or hide in a closet because these boozy treats are made especially for the grown-ups.

Kahlua Hot Chocolate Cupcakes

I made the cupcakes from a cake mix, but if you are a Miss Betty Crocker in the kitchen, you can make the cupcakes from scratch using your favorite recipe.

I drizzled one tablespoon of Kahlua Liqueur over each cupcake before frosting. To ice the tops of the cupcakes, I used a basic chocolate buttercream icing recipe, but I used Kahlua in place of the cream. Lots of boozy yumminess!

Add a few mini marshmallows and a decorative paper straw to make them look like little mugs of hot chocolate. These Kahula Hot Chocolate Cupcakes would make delicious treats to serve alongside a hot chocolate bar or during a holiday office party.

You don’t have to limit yourself to just Kahlua liqueur. Try different flavors. I think Bailey’s Irish Creme, Grand Marnier or Peppermint Schnapps hot chocolate cupcakes would taste amazing! Another treat I like to serve my guests are these boozy coffee popsicles. Yum!
