Chocolate-Guinness Cupcakes

One of the goodies we served for St. Patrick's Day this year were Chocolate-Guinness Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting. They were so delicious and pretty darn easy to make.

The cupcakes were made from scratch – the frosting was not. Sometimes it’s just easier to use the stuff in the jar…
