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.

Bacon Banana Cupcakes With Peanut Butter Frosting and Bourbon Drizzle

Valentine’s Day isn’t all chocolate and roses and champagne, and we know that better than anyone. In fact, we hear it takes two to tango, so here’s a cupcake idea for the more masculine valentine.

These brown sugar cupcakes are bound to be delicious all on their own, but top them with peanut butter frosting, a slice of bacon and a drizzle of brown sugar and bourbon, and we can see why they say the key to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Here’s your master key.

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.

Vanilla Almond Cupcakes

Vanilla Almond Cupcakes

These cupcakes are light and subtly sweet. The vanilla almond cupcake has vanilla tones with sliced almonds right in the mix. The cake is barely sweet to allow the almond to shine.

The frosting is a basic vanilla frosting with a hint of almond extract to cut the sweetness. The flavors in this cupcake really shine—neither the vanilla or almond outshine each other. These cupcakes are perfect for afternoon tea (or a small sweet treat for your love).

Brownie Cupcakes for Two

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!

Champagne Cupcakes

Champagne Cupcakes

These Champagne Cupcakes are super moist and full of champagne flavor! They’d be perfect For New Year’s Eve, or another special occasion, like Valentine’s Day!

This is a very moist cupcake. It’s not super dense, but it’s not super fluffy either. Kind of right down the middle. There’s just more than 1/2 a cup of champagne in the recipe, which gives it plenty of champagne flavor! The icing also has champagne. Hey, if you’re going to celebrate, go all out right?

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.

Skinny Cherry Cupcakes for Valentine’s Day

Skinny Cherry Cupcakes for Valentine's Day

I am not a big “skinny” dessert fan. If I’m going to eat dessert, I prefer it to be quite satisfying. And usually, skinny desserts leave me wanting more.

But not this time. Although, really, I’m not sure how YOU qualify a dessert as skinny. So we will call these skinny-ish, or skinnier cupcakes. If you’re looking for a skinnier dessert recipe this New Year, give these cupcakes a try!
