Why I Love This Recipe

OMG heaven in a cupcake!

So I used the recipe from here however I added a little more flair to it!

instead of the 1 cup of white chocolate chips, I added 1 cup of white chocolate/ macadamia nut mix. I also added more zest to the batter. For the glaze I added more lime juice and zest. I dont have key limes here in Germany so used regular limes. Still it is heaven! so I thought I would share!

BTW- I only taste test my cupcake combos, because I normally give to hubby to take to work. I am thinking I may have to make this again for myself!
