Over the years the celebrations seem to always include fireworks, family time, Barbeques, concerts, drinks and lots of food. So the family here at Boca Java wanted to share some specials with you that may improve your day of celebration.

So your sauce is done and now it’s time for that drink. Everyone wants to impress their friends these days with the latest or coolest cocktail so check out this recipe; of course it has coffee in it.

- 4 oz. Boca Java coffee of your choice
After you prepare the above drink and go into relax mode, think about adding this dessert to your line up. It’s sure to confuse and impress your guests at the same time.
Maple Bacon Cupcakes
1 cup (2 sticks) of butter (room temperature)
2 cups of sugar
4 eggs (room temperature)
3 cups of sifted self-rising flour
1 cup of whole milk (room temperature)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
½ tub of Cool Whip – just do it.
Add small amounts of Boca Java Maple Bacon Coffee to your liking. (Brew it strong)
You may also add maple syrup and/or bacon grease to the cake batter to give it a richer flavor
Cream butter until it’s creamy and fluffy. Add sugar and vanilla then mix until it is very creamy. Add eggs and blend the batter till it is well mixed. Add Flour and milk to the mixture. Use an ice cream scoop to put batter into the baking cups so they are even.
* Consider adding maple syrup in the bottom of the baking cup, this will leave the cupcake very moist.
Frosting: 2 Dozen frosted
2 sticks of butter
4 packages of Cream Cheese (8oz)
2 cups of powdered sugar
2 teaspoons of Pure Vanilla Extract
Add small amounts of Bacon Grease to give a subtle hint of bacon flavoring
Add butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix on medium speed until it is very creamy and no lumps. Add bacon grease in small increments until flavor you desire has been reached.
* Cut small pieces of bacon to add to the top of the cupcake for decoration. You can also chop it up and crumble on top of the frosting as well. Use leftover bacon for bloody Mary in the am. Enjoy!
