One of the easiest cupcakes I’ve made in a long time, these chocolate cupcakes with coffee cream cheese frosting are a great choice for both chocolate and coffee lovers
I tend to believe as one grows older has a harder time taking decisions. For example me. I have been making my own birthday cake for a couple of years now, but this year I found it hard to pick one.
I wanted a cake. A chocolate cake of course. Then I saw the perfect cupcake wrappers (here’s a photo)
But in the same time I wanted a chocolate cheesecake. My #1 favorite dessert.
Yeah, I was a little bit undecided.
To make life sweeter (and pile up the dirty dishes) I made these chocolate cupcakes with coffee cream cheese frosting, triple chocolate cake and brownie bottom cheesecake. Talking about take it easy as you get older.
On the easy side, all recipes came from a Chocolate cookbook I bought just because it was all about chocolate.
One can never have too many chocolate cookbooks, right? When I got home and sit down to thumb through it I knew I would end up making almost every recipe. They all sound Ah-mazing!
From chocolate cakes and cupcakes to the little chocolate treats like cookies and bars plus some tempting chocolate drinks, this book got me drool in no time.
These chocolate coffee cupcakes are the perfect start to the day.
The have coffee and for most of the people that’s the first thing that’s on their mind when getting up in the morning and they have chocolate which is the first thing people like me think about when they get out of the bed.
You see, is the best of both worlds.
The chocolate cupcake recipe is slightly adapted from the chocolate cookbook.
I divided the batter for 12 cupcakes and instead of the coffee flavored whipped cream for frosting I used a coffee flavored cream cheese frosting, which turned out so good even my picky husband (who doesn’t like cream cheese) asked if I have some left so he can eat it with a spoon.
