Beer and chocolate are two ingredients that are rarely associated with each other. However, a grownup twist on a kid's classic is a recipe for chocolate beer cupcakes. This will add the flavor of alcohol but will not overtake the sweet taste of the treats. These cupcakes will be perfect for a football party or another men's event.
