Chocolate cupcakes pair well with fruit flavors. For instance, this particular recipe uses both chocolate and raspberries. The cupcakes are made from bittersweet chocolate, flour, sugar, vanilla extract and butter, among other ingredients. They are poured into festive cupcake liners and baked, before being topped with raspberry buttercream frosting. The frosting contains both raspberry extract and raspberry puree, in order to give each treat the maximum amount of flavor. Toss on a few fresh raspberries and a sprig or two of mint before serving.
