triple chocolate mini cupcakes!

WHOA! CHOCOLATE OVERLOAD!!

I have really been craving a chocolate cupcake for a while now, and for some reason keep pushing the urge away and moving on, but not today! After I had my banana smoothie this morning, I went right for the cocoa powder and whipped up some triple chocolate cupcakes! So far, I’ve eaten two. I think that I should probably give some away or my thighs might be mad at me tomorrow!! They are a nice, rich chocolate cupcake with dark chocolate chips inside, topped with a light, creamy chocolate butter cream which I sprinkled mini chips and gold dusting sugar on top of for a super cute and super tasty treat.

What you need:

CUPCAKES

  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup and 2 tbs cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tbs and 1.5 tsp butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk

FROSTING

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Line a mini cupcake tray with paper liners.

Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda/powder and salt in a bowl and set aside. In a mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Add half of your dry ingredients to your wet, then some milk, then the rest of the dry and the rest of your milk and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Fill each cupcake liner 2/3 of the way full and bake for 12 minutes.

In the meantime, put all of your frosting ingredients together and beat on high speed until light and fluffy.

Cool cupcakes before frosting.

ENJOY!
