Moist, sweet and irresistible chocolate coffee cupcakes made with cold brewed coffee and frosted with coffee flavored buttercream. Now you can drink your coffee and eat it too!
I used to be a black tea lover, that is when my little princess took 2-3 naps a day and I had time to sit down and relax for a minute or two. But those days are over. There are no more naps, the to-do list is longer than ever and I’m always on the run. That’s when coffee came into the picture.
I drink coffee first thing in the morning, coffee after lunch and one more cup after dinner. 3 cups of coffee and lots of chocolate are what keeps me going day after day.
Enjoying a cup of coffee while watching my little princess playing hopscotch in front of the house the idea of adding coffee to a sweet treat came to mind. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know it’s not the first time I use coffee in sweet treats. From cupcakes to rolls and even brownies – I love eating my coffee, not just drinking it.
For these cupcakes I used a cup of cold brewed coffee in the batter and a few drops, just to add a little flavor, in the frosting as well.
Sending love your way,
