Honey Jack and Coke Cocktail Cupcakes

June 05, 2013



by now you should know this favorite time and calorie saving trick of mine - 12 ounces carbonated beverage plus boxed cake mix (just the dry mix, nothing else) makes cupcakes.  it is just that easy.  soda, beer, champagne, just mix it with dry cake mix and it'll bake right up.

so that's step one of the easiest jack and coke cupcakes you could ever make.  i.e. perfect for the last minute father's day dessert.  mix 12 ounces coke or diet coke (or pepsi if that's your jam) with chocolate boxed cake mix.  two ingredients, you know you love it.  mix them until the batter is just a bit lumpy, and place into liners in a cupcake pan.  bake according to directions on your box, usually around 16 minutes at 350 degrees.  always go the lower of the time suggestion, this is how you keep them moist since they continue to cook while in the hot pan (duh) even after you pull them out of the oven.

allow them to cool completely, undoubtedly the longest time period in this whole recipe.

for the frosting, beat 1 and 3/4 sticks of room temperature butter in a bowl for about 1 minute.  slowly add 6 cups of powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1/2 cup honey jack daniels whiskey. beat until creamy.

frost and enjoy!

  2. SHUT THE FRONT DOOR.

    I'm moving in with you so that you can bake me cupcakes (with alcohol, duh) every day.
    Too bad I'm trying to lose weight and cut out alcohol, diet coke, and bad food until I feel I can indulge without going overboard. This post is full of things that I absolutely love and now I'm just sad.

    I'll have you know that I will think about these damn cupcakes, with my mouth watering, the entire time I'm working out tonight. Jerk.
    just kidding, you're not a jerk and I still love you..

  10. I really think I might have to try these this weekend. They look SO good. DC is the nectar of the Gods, and growing up close to Atlanta, I think drinking any Pepsi product is a sin.

  20. Okay... I think that might have been the inspiration I needed for my step-daughter's husband's fourth of six Christmas present desserts. Thanks!

    Damn, it's also the Stern German's birthday this week... and Father's Day next weekend... maybe I'll make them in bulk.
