RumChata Cupcakes Recipe: Boozy Cupcakes Will Be a Fan Favorite

RumChata is a blend of Mexican spices, rum and cream. The deliciously smooth drink can be enjoyed over ice, as a shot, in coffee or cocktails, or ... wait for it ... in cupcakes! These RumChata cupcakes are moist and full of deliciousness. And who doesn't love boozy cupcakes?

You could up the spice factor by adding in some freshly grated nutmeg, allspice, cloves or even pumpkin pie spice. Be sure to double the recipe for get-togethers because they'll go fast.
