I adore cupcakes. They are so easy to make that you can knock out a basic recipe in next to no time. Not only are they very easy to bake they’re tasty and as they are small you don’t feel so bad when having a little cupcake compared to a big slab of, say chocolate cake. I have posted cupcake recipes before and they are always popular.
With this series on cupcakes I wanted to marry the light and pretty cupcake with that other wonderful treat, the chocolate bar. I had to think a bit about this one looking to see if people had made these before and to see how others had added chocolate bars to cupcakes. I then thought about all my favourite chocolate bars and wondered which would work well as a cupcake and how to get the chocolate bar into the cupcake recipe.
With this series on chocolate bar cupcakes I am being a bit more adventurous with how I decorate them. I am exploring new techniques to expand by baking knowledge and develop a bit of an artistic flair. I will share my success and any failures along the way in trying out new ideas and techniques with you all and I hope you will like them enough to try some of the recipes.
I have been pleased with the results so far and will be posting more over the next two weeks as I create some naughty chocolate cupcake treats.
