super bowl treats – saint’s sazerac cupcakes

Dessert number 2 for the big game was a New Orleans original. Apparently this town is so cool it has an official cocktail called a Sazerac. It’s rumored to be one of the oldest cocktails created in the US. After reading a brief history on the cocktail and the glorious praises it received I decided there was no other choice for a super bowl treat…Sazerac Cupcakes with chocolate filigree fleur de lis it is! Recipe @ the modern day pirates. After tasting this little baby I may have a new favorite drink. The Sazerac if anything like the cupcakes is unbelievable.

The Fleur de Lis were an alteration to a Martha Stewart valentines treat (chocolate filigree hearts). They were super super easy. All you need is parchment paper, melted chocolate (I used milk chocolate but I think dark would work way better) a fleur de lis tracer under the parchment (or whatever you want to create out of chocolate) and a parchment pastry bag. Add melted chocolate to bag and trace. Then let harden in the fridge. So easy and so so classy.
