Holly Berry Cupcakes

I was planning to post these chocolate buttermilk cupcakes with chocolate butter cream frosting and candy holly today.

But it does seem a little late. After all it is Christmas Eve, and chances are, you already know exactly what you're making for dinner. And breakfast. And for dinner tomorrow. Etc. But I still wanted to wish you a very Merry Christmas and tell all of my readers how much I've enjoyed sharing my recipes and random ramblings with you. I have so much more that I want to share in the coming year. (Even in the coming week, and if the Quiet Man doesn't hold me back, even tomorrow.) Thanks so much for being my friends, for trying my recipes and for being interested in my sweet and savory minutia. It's no fun to be thrifty alone; I need my fiesty gang of penny pinchers here at Prudence Pennywise.
In the meantime, a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday to all! And in the words of Tiny Tim, God bless us, every one!
PS Happy Birthday to my Irish twin sister Michelle, the Christmas Eve baby that came home in a giant stocking. I was always so jealous of that big giant stocking. I still am. A little.

Of course, I still have time to add some cupcakes to my menu! There is always room for dessert you know!
I thought of Michelle first thing this morning, too, and retold my family of the GIANT baby carrier stocking, too. I always wanted one too. :)
We all love your blog, even the kids, so keep the recipes coming please. Feliz Navidad!

Dear Readers:

If you think the Quiet Man holds Prudence Pennywise back, you don't know Prudence Pennywise. I just try to hang on for the wild ride!

Merry Christmas.

The cupcakes look yummy and festive. I wish I had one last night to put a candle in! That is so funny that you were jealous of the giant stocking. I just always thought I got jipped because I never had a full stocking. I am so glad that I found your blog. Merry Christmas! I can't wait to see what you have to offer next year!
