Snowmageddon 2016 may be dying down, but that’s not the type of blizzard on our minds.

Created with Dairy Queen Butterfinger Blizzards in mind, these yummies place homemade Butterfinger blizzard frosting atop a delicious chocolate cake for a sweet treat sure to start your Friday off right.

If you’re already in the market for a chocolatey sweet treat this week, these chocolate cupcakes will hit the spot like no other. Based on a rich, buttermilk cake recipe, these babies are loaded with chunks of chocolate, and if that’s not enough decadence for you, wait until you see the frosting recipe.

Pink Lemonade Cupcakes

Pink Lemonade Cupcakes

Pink lemonade may not be a typical “winter” flavor, but it’s a delicious one! The greatest thing about this recipe, besides the little taste of summer during otherwise chilly months, is that these guys are so easy to make. A little bit of lemon zest, a little bit of food coloring, a dash of love and perhaps some pink sprinkles are all they take. Convinced yet? We’d also like to point out they’re perfect for Valentine’s Day. Go ahead, get romantic.

Coconut Angel Food Cupcakes

Coconut Angel Food Cupcakes

We’ve been all about warming comfort cakes here at The Cupcake Blog lately, but light snacking is important too. It’s January, and we’ve all made resolutions for the new year, some involving shedding a few pounds. If that’s the case, these cupcakes fit the bill. Based on angel food cake with a light coconut flavor infusion, these cupcakes are light, airy and perfect for a sweet treat without that overwhelming full feeling. Plus, they look charmingly similar to the snow piles from last weekend’s #Blizzard2016! Not a huge fan of coconut? Keep in mind the taste is very light here, but if coconut turns you all the way off, substitute vanilla flavor instead, and enjoy these cakes just the same!

Double Chocolate Creme Fraiche Cupcakes

Double Chocolate Creme Fraiche Cupcakes

There’s something to be said for last minute treats, and these guys really fit the bill. They’re easy, tasty, and they look like they took hours, even though they only take like, 15 minutes. Plus, if you’re going for fancy, you can’t do better than “crème fraîche” cupcakes. With interesting ingredients like dark cocoa, hot coffee and, of course, fraîche (a cultured product close to sour cream), these beauties are sure to be as interesting as they are visually appealing…as long as you don’t attempt to substitute sour cream.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Red Velvet Cupcakes

The secret to the color of red velvet cupcakes is actually no secret (hint: it’s a ton of red food dye), but the perfect cake (red or otherwise) requires much more than a dump of dye! In fact, it requires finesse. It requires a delicate hand. And most importantly…it requires a delicious recipe that’s been tried and tried again. A good red velvet cupcake makes you feel like you should be WALKING on red velvet, like the superstar that you are. This particular recipe is so perfect that fancy topping isn’t even necessary – a simple buttercream will do. The cupcakes do all the talking for themselves. Listen up.

Strawberry Basil Cupcakes

Strawberry Basil Cupcakes

Strawberry is a wonderful fruit, but sometimes we get so wrapped up in its personal flavor, we forget how well it pairs with herbs! In this case, combine strawberry with basil to make a cupcake that will have everyone asking for more. We’re using basil sugar here, not pure basil, so no need to worry it will overpower the sweetness you expect in a cupcake. Like many of the recipes we love, one of these cupcakes just might not be enough.
