At my work today we hosted a Holiday party for all the clients. I decided to take on the task of making all the treats for the party instead of ordering bakery items from somewhere. I wanted to make a few different types of things to please all taste and this was one recipe I found that I thought was festive and delicious. It was a huge hit and everyone loved them! I will be posting all of the recipes I made over the next few days, so stay tuned.

2 Tablespoons Rum – I used spiced rum
- Follow the directions on the box – mix all ingredients together.
- Fill cupcake liners 2/3 of the way full and bake at 325 for about 16-18 minutes. Be careful not to over bake or they will become dry.
