Recipe: Mulled Wine Cupcakes

These were very interesting but I don’t think I would make them again. The combination of wine and chocolate is a bit too much for me. I’d probably be content just to drink the mulled wine and nibble of some dark chocolate separately. In the future if I make these again I won’t ice them either.
