Mocha Cupcakes with Espresso Buttercream Frosting

Mocha Cupcakes with Espresso Buttercream Frosting

These mocha cupcakes are a chocolate and coffee lover’s dream come true. If you can’t get your day going without your favorite cup of coffee, you’re in luck.

 I might even go so far as to suggest that you should just skip your morning cup of coffee or trip to Starbucks and have one of these instead. The cake part itself strikes a subtle balance between light chocolate and a hint of creamy coffee. Not overwhelming on either end of the spectrum, and the combination results in a smooth, clean flavor, which is perfect for topping with espresso-spiked buttercream.

Thin Mint Fudge Cupcakes

Thin Mint Fudge Cupcakes

Thin Mint Fudge Cupcakes with chocolate minty cookie frosting and a layer of hot fudge sauce, yum!  These are a dream come true!  My friend ate one last night and she said “This was the best thing I’ve ever had.”

Since I only used the really fine cookie crumbs for the frosting, I used the larger pieces as “sprinkles” after I piped out the frosting.  No crumb left behind :)

Chocolate Malt Espresso Cupcakes

Chocolate Malt Espresso Cupcakes
The perfect combination of chocolate, malted milk and coffee. They are insanely rich and chocolatey, with hints of malt and a kick of espresso.
These one bowl cupcakes are probably one of the easiest recipes ever, yet one of the most mind-blowingly delicious! The rich, moist and fudgy, cupcakes are topped with a light creamy chocolate malt espresso frosting, a drizzle of simple chocolate glaze and finished with a tiny swirl of sweet vanilla buttercream and a chocolate malt ball on top, pure decadence.

Pink Squirrel Cocktail Inspired Cupcakes

Pink Squirrel Cocktail Inspired Cupcakes

I love pink glittery Christmas decor, and it seems to be showing up in my baked goods, too! This cupcake is inspired by the retro ‘Pink Squirrel’ cocktail. The drink is a bit like a milkshake served in a martini glass (yes please) and it’s flavored with crème de noyaux (almond liquor) and crème de cocoa.

I really had fun with this recipe and translated ‘Pink Squirrel’ into something more literal. I made my own glittering pink squirrel toppers from ready-made gum paste, a squirrel cookie cutter and glitter. You can find a cookie cutter similar to the one I used here.

Copycat Hostess Cupcakes

Copycat Hostess Cupcakes

Decadent and delicious, these Copycat Hostess Cupcakes are better than the original! Fudgy with a cream filling, just like the original!

I know it’s so much easier to go the grocery store and spend $2.79 on a box of Hostess Cupcakes. I get that. And sometimes I do that. But sometimes, I like to surprise my family with a rich, chocolate treat. And today, as I indulge in some chocolate cupcakes, I’m going to hug my loved ones a little tighter. Laugh a little louder. And love a little longer. I encourage you to do the same!
