Gooey Pecan Pie Cupcakes

ErikaErika
  (4)

This nontraditional cupcake recipe is inspired by Shawn Jeffries Kentucky Derby Pecan Pie. It is the most decadent, delicious, chocolaty pie I’ve ever tasted. Plus, it has bourbon in it! I had to figure out how to make it into a cupcake. The cake recipe makes a no-fail buttery cupcake.
