I had posted a picture of my favorite winter cupcake to facebook a couple weeks back and had a few ask for the recipe. So I thought I would share with you all! I combined a few of my favorite things and came up with my Spiced Eggnog Cupcake recipe last year! It is now a favorite in my house and I have made it several times since! A spicy pound-cake baked to golden perfection, a bit of buttery caramel, then a rather delightful eggnog cream cheese icing tops it off, but don’t forget to sprinkle the nutmeg & cinnamon and add a caramel drizzle to complete this mouth-watering cupcake! We hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as we do!

Yields 24 delicious cupcakes! :)
