These delicious eggnog cupcakes are not only quick, but easy too. They are a great way to celebrate the holiday season using a treat most people enjoy.

Cupcake Ingredients:

  • 1 (16 ounce) package of cake mix
  • 1 1/4 cups eggnog
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon of grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

  Icing:

  • 1/2 cup of softened butter
  • 1 (3 ounce) package of cream cheese (be sure to soften it)
  • 1 (16 ounce) package of confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup eggnog
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of grated nutmeg

You'll notice that these ingredients are not all that uncommon. A lot of this should be easily found at most supermarkets.

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners. (You can also spray the muffin tins with cooking spray, but the liners work better and can be more festive!)
  3. Mix the cake mix, 1 1/4 cups of eggnog, eggs, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract in a bowl. Mix on low until the ingredients are wet.
  4. Then mix on medium and beat for approximately 2 more minutes.
  5. Carefully spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  6. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean. This should take about 18 to 20 minutes.
  7. Be sure to take the muffins out of the tin (if they're in liners) and place on a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Next it is time to mix the frosting. Beat together the butter and cream cheese until they are smooth and creamy.
  9. Slowly beat in the confectioners' sugar and eggnog. Be sure to mix using a low speed.
  10. Then mix in the vanilla extract and nutmeg. The frosting should be smooth and fluffy.
  11. Spread carefully on the cupcakes. Make sure the cupcakes are cool before frosting for best results.

This easy and tasty desert is sure to be a huge hit with family.

One thing to keep in mind is what eggnog you choose to use. You may use your own eggnog rather than store bought. Some people prefer the taste.
