You might recall the Amazing White Chocolate Raspberry Champagne Cupcake I made for my buddy Jenny’s wedding anniversary back in July 2014. Tiers of white chocolate cake as well as covered in white chocolate buttercream. It was certainly one of Jenny’s most loved cupcakes and it was So Amazing.
As soon as Jenny eventually left Australia around August, I said I’d cook for her one final time. This time she chose the mint dark chocolate chip cake along with the s’mores cupcakes. Because I wasn’t attempting to make that huge layer cake again, I made a decision to transform the cake straight into cupcakes!
All of these Dark chocolate Chip Peppermint Cupcakes happen to be surprisingly easy to make and are totally well worth the time and effort. The actual cake is without a doubt my simple dark chocolate recipe, without the espresso powder. I did not desire any mocha flavoring to come though in the cake.
The actual buttercream frosting happens to be whipped to a light and very fluffy perfection and is also full of pieces of top quality dark chocolate and additionally colored a minty natural green color.
Pieces of top quality dark chocolate top the whole cupcake. I made use of Lindt 70% bittersweet dark chocolate within the frosting and also the garnish. Lindt is definitely my personal favorite dark chocolate to work with in baking.
Jenny adored these cupcakes and I was really tremendously thrilled to bake these for her
