RumChata Cupcake Recipe

RumChata Cupcake Recipe

Found this GREAT Recipe on a Blog, Love. Life. & Creative Things. HAD to share! Here are her notes:

RumChata is sooo delicious. If you haven’t had it, go try it. It tastes like… cinnamon toast crunch in liquid form. I saw a RumChata inspired cupcake recipe and of course, had to make some. They are soooo good…. and very very sweet.

NOTE: This makes A LOT of frosting. I tend to use quite a bit on my cupcakes. I ended up with a cup extra. So, if you don’t use a lot, cut the recipe in half. (I also normally freeze my leftover frosting for use later. I label and date it, I’ve used some that’s been frozen for just about 5 months and it tasted fine)

I would recommend refrigerating the cupcakes if you won’t be serving them right away. If it’s warm, the frosting can melt. Enjoy!
They are soooo good…. and very very sweet. Enjoy!
