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.

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!

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

Every Saturday is a day of celebration, and this one is no different. We’ve settled on these strawberry chocolate chip cupcakes, originally created for a proposal, to sweeten up this Saturday morning, afternoon, evening or all three…in case you need a little extra today.

Bitter dark chocolate is perfectly balanced with strawberry flavor, including fresh strawberry puree in the cake, which also makes it extra moist. And it’s even better when you eat them straight out of the oven while the chocolate is still gooey! We won’t judge you.

Date Cupcakes with Maple Cinnamon Buttercream

Date Cupcakes with Maple Cinnamon Buttercream

If the term “sweet treat” doesn’t elicit visions of dates in your mind, you’re most likely not alone. Dates aren’t typically considered a sweet (unless you’re a raw foodie), but these cupcakes are proof that sometimes the crowd can be wrong.

Modeled after sweet date cake and topped with homemade caramel sauce and maple cinnamon buttercream, these date cupcakes are as far from boring as you can imagine. In fact, they’re much closer to scrumptious.

Chocolate Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes

Chocolate Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes

Is there anything better than chocolate and raspberry together? I dare say there is, and it’s called Dark Chocolate Frosting. I’ve never had a go-to chocolate frosting before now, but I guarantee I’ll never be making another recipe again.

The texture of this frosting is the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. It’s rich and silky, and pipes beautifully. I promise this is the only chocolate frosting recipe you’ll ever need. And with a raspberry filling, these are the only cupcakes you’ll ever want.
