I have found that there really isn't a grey area when talking about stout beer. Either you love it or hate it. In fact, I don't love it. I just can't get past the foam on top or the intense flavor. So when I was asked to come up with a recipe using this rich dark beer, I was a little nervous.
I knew I needed chocolate, so I grabbed a Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® German chocolate cake mix and a stout beer and began my quest. I will tell you right away that these cupcakes are DELICIOUS! Don't stop reading if you are in the camp that doesn't like stout beer...these Chocolate Stout Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean Frosting are soooo good!
