The Super Bowl is this Sunday. I’m not really into the actual game. I am much more interested in the commercials and the food! This year I am whipping up a batch of these Chocolate Almond Cupcakes. They are super easy to make and they taste great! I especially love the frosting. It starts with a can of store-bought frosting. I am not normally a fan of canned frosting, but I folded in some Cool Whip and WOW! Light and tasty frosting. You can’t beat a 2 ingredient frosting!
I doctored up the cupcakes with some chopped almonds, chocolate chips and almond extract. They tasted great and everyone that tried them really enjoyed them. I found the cute football cupcake liners at Walmart. They are foil so they don’t fade when they bake. Love that!
