Looking for a treat to make for St Patrick’s Day that’s so good you’re sure to get kissed? You need to make these Almond Fudge Kiss Cupcakes!
Whether you’re Irish or not, you’ll be feeling pretty lucky after eating a few of these cupcakes!
These little cakes are fluffy and so buttery (yum!) and they have the delightful aroma of almond that comes from almond extract.
This was my first time making an almond cake, and I know it sounds strange, but I didn’t want to use any actual nuts in the cake, which is why I went with the extract. I modified my butter cake recipe, and it turned out just right! I really love the way the almond extract brightens the flavor of the cake. And it pairs perfectly with the frosting! Oh this fudge frosting…
It’s thick, and rich, and smooth. Not too sugary…I don’t like frosting that’s super sweet. It is chocolatey though!
It has a deep chocolate flavor with just a hint of almond. I could just eat the whole batch with a spoon, really.
Toss on a few rainbow sprinkles and an almond kiss, and these Almond Fudge Kiss Cupcakes are ready to bring you some luck 😉
