Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Beat cake mix, 1 1/4 cups eggnog, eggs, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract in a bowl using an electric mixer on low until batter is blended. Increase speed to medium and beat for 2 more minutes. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean, about 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer cupcakes to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Beat butter and cream cheese together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Gradually beat confectioners' sugar, alternating with small amounts of 1/4 cup eggnog and ending with confectioners' sugar, into butter mixture using an electric mixer on low speed until icing is smooth and fluffy. Beat 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg into icing until incorporated; spread over cooled cupcakes.

Super easy but fancy! Eggnog and nutmeg add perfect holiday flavor. Dense, moist cake and thick yet light frosting.

Great taste with the pound cake mix. . I added a splash of rum to the pound cake and skipped the frosting. Just whipped up some heavy whipping cream to thick and then added in a splash of egg no...

While the flavor was good, the cupcakes were just too dense. I think I would try using a white cake mix next time instead of a pound cake mix.

these were "oh my goodness!" good! Made no changes, only added shaved white chocolate on top...our company that day was impressed!

We just got done making these cupcakes. We didn't change anything. They came out SO good. We love them and will definitely be making more of these this year and years to come! Thanks!!!!
