Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcakes

Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcakes

Several people seem to go crazy for these gluten-free chocolate cupcake, and we’re not surprised. Developed on the fly, they sound like little cups of heaven…for EVERYONE.

Keep in mind that because of the lack of gluten, the cupcakes don’t rise in that lovely mound on top like you might want. In fact they sink a little in the middle. But don’t worry. That’s what the frosting is for.

Chocolate Buttermilk Cupcakes with Earl Grey Buttercream and Salted Caramel

Chocolate Buttermilk Cupcakes with Earl Grey Buttercream and Salted Caramel

You might think it sounds like a strange combination, but the moist, slightly bitter dark chocolate cake is heavenly when you add the fluffy meringue-style icing with a hint of bergamot.

It’s pretty much chocolate and orange! And salted caramel goes with everything. Why not shake up your Sunday cup of tea?

Thin Mints S’Mores Cupcakes

Thin Mints S'Mores Cupcakes

It’s the most wonderful time of the yeaaar…no, it’s not Christmas – it’s Girl Scouts cookie season! And there’s only one thing better than a plain Thin Mint: a Thin Mints s’more.

These Thin Mints s’more inspired-cupcakes have a Thin Mints cookie crust (to mimic a s’mores crust) at the bottom of a mint chocolate cupcake, which is topped with homemade marshmallow fluff. Before you toast the marshmallow, top them off with a Thin Mint cut in half and made into a mini s’mores for the perfect topping.

Everyone loves a little chocolate, especially on Valentine’s Day. This cupcake recipe takes love of chocolate and salted caramel to a whole new, and delicious, level.

Brownie Cupcakes for Two

This recipe makes exactly TWO fudgy chocolate brownie cupcakes, in one bowl, right in the toaster oven! Topped with a creamy buttercream frosting, this recipe is perfect for Valentine’s Day, an anniversary or extra special small-batch after dinner treat.

I like to top them with a simple vanilla or chocolate buttercream, but feel free to mix and match with your cupcakes, for your own custom, gourmet flavor combinations!

Vegan Love: Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Rich Chocolate Frosting

Vegan Love: Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Rich Chocolate Frosting

Have you ever tried a vegan cupcake? The truth is, had I not been the one who made these cupcakes, I would honestly never guess that they were dairy and egg free, because they are perfectly decadent.

Both taste and texture went way beyond my expectations, truly (particularly the cake texture–so incredibly moist). Trust me, whether you’re vegan or not, these cupcakes are frickin’ yummy.

Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries

Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries

Call me easily amused, but these little torch-topped cupcakes delight me.  Besides being a cute novelty item for a party, I think they would add a little drama to the end of a romantic meal.

The cakes are just sweet enough, and have a light, fluffy crumb – the perfect vehicle for rich chocolate buttercream. The strawberries are hollowed out and filled with a bit of liquor, then ignited with a match. I’ve been looking for something different to serve for Valentine’s dessert, and this is definitely different.

Deep, Dark and Rosy Red Velvet Cupcakes

Deep, Dark and Rosy Red Velvet Cupcakes

I know that a lot of people only associate red velvet with Christmas, but for me, red velvet is definitely a February thing. And for some reason this year, I really went full force with the V-Day eats.

These cupcakes were just the start, I loved them. I haven’t said that yet, but I really did love them. The chocolate flavor is awesome and subtle light flavors of the roses balance the chocolate out. AND that cream cheese frosting. Whoa.

That’s maybe the best thing ever. Seriously, so good.
