Chocolate guinness and irish cream cupcakes

 I've been eying this recipe for quite a while and finally got around to trying it.  An incredibly moist chocolate Guinness cupcake, filled with Bailey's irish cream ganache and topped with Bailey's irish cream frosting.  The alcoholic flavors played off each other very nicely, each distinctive yet subtle enough to let the chocolate shine.  We had some problems with the ganache separating, but thankfully we were able to recombine the mixture...though the consistency was not quite suitable for ganache.  In the end, we decided to make a second batch.  I'm sure we'll find a good way to use up the first batch, even if it means eating chocolate by the spoonful!  I'm not letting my beloved Ghirardelli 60% cacao chips go to waste!!
