Chocolate Kahlua Cupcakes

Easy peasy lemon squeezey. But not into this batter…don’t squeeze any lemons into the batter…okay, you will need…

1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs (by the way, I know this is orange, but I can’t figure out why it thinks it’s linked to something. ugh!)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup water
1-2 tablespoons (to taste) Kahlua flavoring

Cream the butter and sugar. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix the water and buttermilk in another. Add these two alternatively to the creamed butter, mixing well afterwards.

Pop in a 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes.

Frosting:

3 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup of butter
a teaspoon of vanilla
teaspoon (or to taste) of Kahlua flavoring.
1/2 cup of chocolate chips
2-3 tablespoons of buttermilk

Combine sugar and butter. After being well mixed, add all other ingredients, chocolates at the end.
