Chocolate Guinness Cupcakes!

I cook as little as possible and bake even less.  But as a matter of pride, I need a handful of recipes that are easy and no-fail, so I can cheerfully offer “What can I bring?” when a friend hosts a dinner party.

Chocolate Guinness Cupcakes are easy!  Click here for the recipe at Chow.com, credited to Dave Lieberman.

My first try turned out great.  The only modifications I made:  I added Bailey’s to the frosting when it seemed too thick and my cupcakes were mini-size (tons of sugar in there!), baked for 12 minutes.

A fun conversation starter and perfect for any time even close to St. Patrick’s Day.
