Mini Egg Nog Cupcakes

My husband and son love eggnog so I gave these a try for neighbor gifts and got the thumb’s up from both of them so if you like eggnog, these would be a yummy and easy treat idea for Christmas.

cupcakes

1 white cake mix

1 1/4 cup eggnog

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

frosting

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/4 cup eggnog

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

4 – 5 cups powdered sugar

1  For cupcakes, preheat oven to 350.  Line mini muffin pans with paper liners or spray wells with cooking spray for baking.

2  Combine cake mix, eggnog, eggs, nutmeg and vanilla and whisk until combined.

3  Spoon or scoop batter into prepared pans, filling 2/3 way full.

4  Bake 8 – 10 minutes or until barely golden brown.  Remove and let cool completely.

5  For frosting, cream together butter, eggnog, vanilla and nutmeg then mix in powdered sugar 1 cup at a time.  Spread or pipe frosting onto cupcakes.

Yield:  the recipe said it would make 48 mini cupcakes but I got 72, if you get that many too then make sure you double the frosting recipe because I ran out
