I made these cupcakes with my niece for her Valentine's party at school, and she told me they were gone pretty quick. My 9 year old was in bed when we made these. Then he saw the picture I was posting and his eyes doubled in size, followed by a scream like: Mom! Where did you get those??
Well, sorry to disappoint you body - they came from our oven. So after I am done typing this, it's cupcake making round two.
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup of milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup of white chocolate, melted
1. Preheat the oven to 375 F/180 C and put paper liners into shallow muffin pans.
2. In a large bowl beat the butter with sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time and beat well until the mixture is smooth. Add vanilla and milk, then stir in half the chocolate chips.
3. Sift the flour and baking powder into a mixture stir well to blend the batter (should be like sour cream consistency, if not add more milk).
4. Pour the batter into the paper liners 2/3 full and bake for 15 -18 minutes until risen and firm. Transfer the cupcakes to a wire rack to cool.
5. After they are cold, spoon a teaspoon of melted chocolate on top of each, then a little melted white chocolate and swirl lightly with a toothpick for a marbled effect (I used some raspberry frosting too).
