Have you noticed a theme to my last couple of posts, Chocolate Stout Cake, Baileys® Pots de Crème, and now these amazing Caramilk® Cream-Vodka Cooler Cupcakes?  They all have a special ingredient, no 2 special ingredients, alcohol and chocolate! I’ve gone from Chocolate Beer to creamy liqueur and now to one of the world’s most popular liquors, vodka (my favourite) combined with chocolate and caramel in this delicious cooler.

When I was out shopping for Stout Beer I noticed the Caramilk® Cream-Vodka Coolers and I knew they would be amazing in something, but what?

With my niece’s (Natalie) engagement party coming up I started thinking about all the events leading up to the wedding.  Immediately my thoughts turned to the Stag and DoeBoozy cupcakes would be the perfect treat!

I remembered an article I read a while back about the Magnolia Bakery.  It’s located in New York City (definitely planning to stop in on my next visit!) and they are famous for their delicious cupcakes.  The cupcakes are so popular that they limit the amount you can purchase at any one time to 12 and often times there is a huge line up to get into the bakery.

I was lucky enough to run across the Magnolia Bakery’s recipe for Chocolate Cupcakes online. Very happy I did because these cupcakes are super moist and rich in chocolate flavour.

I was ready to throw the Caramel Buttercream Icing out the window more than a few times.  It was very soft (I think I will add a tablespoon of shortening next time to make it a little more stable.) and hard to work with (you can see from the photos that the icing is leaning over).  I’m glad I persevered, in the end the taste was well worth it!

Vodka, creamy caramel and chocolate are an amazing combination, but, WOW, these are absolutely sinful and truly decadent!

    Yum!! I have never seen Caramilk cream vodka coolers…though I don’t frequently go into the liquor store. It sounds like something I would drink far too much of because it tastes so good.

    Giovanna I am Italian but raised here in Canada for most of my life. I can understand the language, a little more difficult when trying to read but I think I got the gist of your comment. I look forward to stopping in and visiting your blog. What a great idea to team up with a couple of friends.
