These are not your girlfriend's cupcakes. There is no frilly pastel frosting piped on top. They are not delicate. They are not pretty.
They are big, bold, manly and totally down for a Super Bowl spread.
Since ease is key for Super Bowl feasts, we decided to start with a chocolate cake mix. To man-it-up, we made them big and added beer. Instead of pretty buttercream frosting, we dabbed and smeared whiskey frosting all over them. And to really take it up a notch, bacon. Salted peanuts, pretzels or crushed malted milk balls also would be terrific.
