Coffee Chocolate Cupcakes with Baileys

Cupcakes for no good reason. No birthday, celebration, family dinner or anything like that. Just cupcakes because the recipe sounded to good to wait to make. Coffee in a cupcake, could I ask for more? My two greatest loves, besides a good cheese.

Lazy sunday.
