    I haven't had a Kahlua in years. Having it in butter-cream on top of a chocolate / coffee cupcake sounds simply divine. Beautiful photo too! YUM.

    these were the BOMB, omg chocolate and coffee heaven…as an aside, since i was making these for kids…i only used kahlua in the cake part and used 1/2 cup plus the 2 Tbsp of coffee in the icing….mocha bliss…perfect crumb to the cake, fluffy, no grit icing. definitely a winner. thank you so much for sharing this!

    These look amazing. I think I have to get some Kahlua and try them. DO you think a coffee flavored cream filling would be to overpowering?

      I think that would be ridiculously indulgent, in the best way! :)

    Would Bailey's be an okay substitute for Kahlua? Just because that's what I have around here…

    Goodness – mudslide cupcakes, are you serious?? I'm mean honestly these looked so good that I literally went to the store with the print out of what I needed the very day I found it! I made them that very night!! lol I couldn't resist. They were great but of course, I could not stop at just one – luckily I had plenty of people that helped me polish them off!! :)
