chocolate-covered strawberry champagne cupcakes

I know, I know. 
With all of the resolutions floating out there I probably shouldn't be posting a recipe for such a delicious confection. 
But I am. 
All in moderation, no? 


Here is the little treat we enjoyed last night as the clock struck midnight. 
Hope you have a great celebration as well. 



Chocolate-covered Strawberry Champagne Cupcakes

2 3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
2 sticks of butter
2 cups sugar
3 egg
1 tsp vanilla1 cup champagne

[frosting]
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 box powdered sugar, sifted
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup Champagne

strawberries
semi-sweet chocolate morsels
 
*directions 

Preheat oven to 350.  In a small bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt.  Set aside.  In mixer cream butter and sugar until well mixed and airy.  Add eggs one at a time making sure each one is fully incorporated before adding the next.  
 
Slowly add in flour mixture.  Stir in vanilla and champagne.
Fill cupcake liners 1/2 full.

Bake for 25 minutes.
For frosting
Cream butter until smooth.  Slowly add sifted powdered sugar.  Mixture will be very thick, keeping adding champagne to get to the consistency you want.
