Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes

Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes

If you like chocolate covered cherries, you are going to love these Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes. A delicate spongy cupcake filled with cherry preserves and topped with cherry buttercream frosting. These are sure to be a crowd-pleaser!

Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes recipe highlights:

This recipe was inspired by my favorite candy, chocolate covered cherries.

The cupcake is full of chocolate flavor and kept moist with the help of oil and butter.

The frosting is a simple buttercream that is flavored with cherry preserves. Each cupcake gets a generous filling of cherry preserves and then topped with the cherry buttercream. There is no shortage of cherry flavor in this recipe.

A Dozen Rose Cupcakes

A Dozen Rose Cupcakes
Even if you don’t make the sugar roses for these cupcakes, they are absolutely delicious and a chocolate lover’s dream come true. The centers are filled with rich chocolate ganache and the vanilla bean frosting swirl on top is a nice counter to all the chocolate. The recipe makes two dozen cupcakes, so you can keep one dozen and gift another (if you’re feeling generous).
Learning a new skill is exciting, and if you take the plunge into sugar flower-making, then be patient with yourself. The first flower may take a little longer to make than the rest, but that’s just a part of the learning process.

Chocolate Mint Cupcakes

Chocolate Mint Cupcakes

Celebrate Earth Day with us with these yummy Chocolate Mint Cupcakes from Taste and Tell!

Mint lovers will go crazy for these Chocolate Mint Cupcakes that are topped with a smooth and creamy mint Swiss meringue buttercream frosting.

Here are some delicious Chocolate Mint Cupcakes that I made from the wonderful blog – How to Eat a Cupcake (update 2016 – sadly, this blog is no longer online). The only change I made to them was to leave out the chocolate chips, because I didn’t have any mini ones, and since I made mini sized cupcakes (see note at the top of the post), I knew regular chocolate chips would be just too big. These Chocolate Mint Cupcakes were awesome – and really – food bloggers rarely let me down!!

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.

Blood Orange Chocolate Cupcakes

Blood Orange Chocolate Cupcakes

There’s something just wonderful about the bold, sweet flavors of blood oranges. Make sure you grab some before they are out of season and make some baked goods!

These cupcakes use my favorite chocolate cupcake recipe as a base and it’s boasting with sweet orange zest and dark chocolate made richer with a hint of coffee. Topped with a blood orange frosting (isn’t the color gorgeous??), they are finished with decorative edible candied blood oranges dipped in chocolate.

Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream Frosting

Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream Frosting

These are some of the most decadent cupcakes I’ve ever made – and in such a good way! They are rich and luscious and oh so irresistibly chocolatey! This is definitely one of my new favorite chocolate cupcake recipes (and if you want to make it more of a milder milk chocolate cupcake just reduce the cocoa 2 Tbsp and up the flour 2 more Tbsp, I tested them out both ways but definitely preferred the darker version here paired with the sweetness of the raspberry frosting). They are somewhat dense and deliciously fudgy and you’ll want to make them again and again.

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 :)

The perfect combination of chocolate, malted milk and coffee. They are insanely rich and chocolatey, with hints of malt and a kick of espresso.
