    Follow the written recipe, not the video. As others have mentioned the butter is quoted incorrectly in the cupcakes and she also says 8oz of cream cheese in the video. I used the 16oz in the written recipe and the flavor is balanced. Overall the cupcakes are very yummy. Would definitely make again.

      She is also clearly putting in granulated sugar although the recipe calls for confectioners.

    4 hearts do NOT make a shamrock. That's a 4-leaf clover. A shamrock has 3 leaves.

    Made these today and they are very, very fudgy. On the video, the tester uses one stick of butter and the recipe calls for 2 sticks of butter for the cupcakes. Which one is it??????

      I made these from the March 2017 magazine (which matches the above recipe with 2 sticks of butter). They were perfect and delicious!

    Love, love , love this recipe! I made them on a whim for a St Patrick's Day dessert and was the hit of the party! I even sifted the flour! Just used green sugar as a decoration, they sparkled! Definitely a new tradition for March 17th! And it's two stick of unsalted butter.....
