Malteaser Cupcakes

Malteaser Cupcakes

If you ask us, the foundation of any good cupcake is a good base recipe. Add in a favorite chocolate candy, and you’re in for the perfect sweet, tiny cake. For these malteaser cupcakes, “wet” chocolate batter results in a less cakey, more moist and fudgy sort of cupcake, and these little dudes are also topped with delicious malt balls perfect for cuddling up with a movie or taking in a weekend holiday party. Grab yourself some malt powder (think Ovaltine) and the usual plethora of baking goods and get cooking!
