Spiked Jello Poke Cupcakes

With homemade Nutella buttercream frosting! 

This year for Victor‘s birthday I wanted to make something extra special. I have made Jello Poke Cake in the past but wanted to trying something that would be easier to serve to a dozen friends out for a birthday brunch in the neighborhood. These vanilla cupcakes are special because they have stripes of strawberry rum jello inside. They are topped with an icing made with a blend of butter, sugar, and everyone’s favorite Nutella (an entire jar!). These were a sell-out hit at Victor’s brunch, everyone had two. Happy Birthday Victor!

Mudslide Jello

I rang in the new year over the weekend with a little something boozy from the book.  This very rich and creamy Mudslide jello, fashioned after the cocktail, is made with generous amounts of coffee and Irish cream liqueurs, heavy cream, and a touch of vodka. A little cocoa powder tops it off (whipped cream and/or chocolate syrup would also be good).  Have a happy New Year everyone!
