So, the other day I went to Costco………..And I bought a lot.
A whole lot of bourbon! Does anyone else buy Bourbon by the half-gallon?
So, yeah I do not drink. Like at all, never tried the stuff, nor do I plan to. I have many reasons for this, but we will save that for another time. Everyone finds it so weird that I am always looking for alcohol, but do not actually drink it. And you know what I say? Just taste my food! I am telling you people it adds such amazing flavor to both you baking and cooking!
So I made sure I was stocked up for the holidays and went to Costco and bought a half-gallon of the good stuff. Along with some wine, vodka, a large bottle of Kahlua and 3 bottles of vanilla. All for my cooking and baking!
Really is there a better way to use bourbon than mixed with butter and chocolate?
Um and can I just say that Bourbon, chocolate and pecans are a trio made in heaven. Seriously.
The chocolate bourbon cupcakes alone are insanely good! The flavor is just out of this world and the bourbon highlights the chocolate so well. Then add the butter pecan frosting that could be eaten by the spoonful and you may just have one of the most delicious cupcakes of the season!
Bourbon. Chocolate. Pecans. YUM
