These are not your girlfriends 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. And instead of pretty buttercream frosting, weve dabbed and smeared whiskey frosting all over them. And to really take it up a notch, bacon. Of course, salted peanuts, pretzels or crushed malted milk balls also would also be terrific.
If you want, you also could make giant cupcakes; you just need an oversized muffin pan (sold at most kitchen shops). Youll need to cook larger cupcakes longer (timing will vary depending on the size).
But whatever you do, dont you dare add sprinkles.
