Did you know that you can use coffee creamers to flavor frostings? Oh yes, and meringues, puddings, whipped creams, cookies, muffins, you name it! This totally opens my world to fun flavor combinations! I used International Delight’s White Chocolate Macadamia flavor to make these yummy white chocolate macadamia cupcakes. So let your Valentine know you’re “NUTS” about them by surprising them with these cupcakes!
I chopped up some white chocolate and macadamia nuts to garnish the cupcakes. You certainly don’t have to do this because the creamer adds such a boost of flavor (but I like to pretty up cupcakes to designate the flavor). I also added some white chocolate chips in the batter itself!
Aren’t they delish looking? I seriously had to chew about 3 different types of gum over the course of making these so I wouldn’t devour them all. My lucky husband was thrilled to see these when he arrived home (and the neighbors). Don’t worry, I did enjoy one and can fully attest they’re delicious!
