To make the cupcakes:

Preheat oven to 325 F degrees. Line mini muffin pans with liners. Set aside.

Sift together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate mixing bowl, combine milk, butter, honey and vanilla extract. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the milk/butter mixture. Mix until combined. Pour batter into prepared muffin pans (about 2/3 full). Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before decorating.

To make the frosting:

In a large mixing bowl, sift together powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Add the butter, milk and vanilla extract. Using an electric mixer, slowly mix together at a low speed. Once all the ingredients are combined, increase the speed and beat till fluffy.

To assemble the cupcakes:
Lightly drizzle each cupcake with a little bit of your liqueur of choice. Place the frosting in a piping bag with a star tip or round tip. Pipe frosting on each cupcake. Top with a few semi-sweet chocolate chips or assorted chocolate candies. Drizzle the melted chocolate all over the top of each cupcake.
