I’ve confessed my love for International Delight Coffee Creamer, and how I use it in many different baked goods to add delicious flavor. During the Fall there are Pumpkin Pie Spice Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting, and the Butter Pecan Cake is a super easy Poke Cake that is to die for, the Sweet Cream Banana Tartlets are the perfect little bite of goodness and we can’t forget about the York Peppermint Pattie Cupcakes, which is actually the same recipe I used for these Mini Chocolate Peppermint Truffle Cupcakes but I used the luscious International Delight Chocolate Peppermint Truffle Creamer instead.
