Chocolate Cupcakes


 I think I am not the only one who just LOVES chocolate, so I created something delish, for us! :D

Well if You are on a diet, and you're still reading it, I can't help. You will break your rules. :D 
This cupcake is definitely worth it, (or the plus 20 minutes of sport ;)) 

Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate and Peanut butter frosting :)
Ingredients: (for 24 cupcakes)
   for the cupcakes:
  • 3 eggs
  • 200 g = 4/5 cups of sugar
  • 250 g= 1 cup of flour
  • 2 dl= 7 fl. oz. of milk
  • 0,5 dl= 1/5 cup= 1.6 fl. oz of oil
  • 2 tbsp of cocoa
  • 1 tbsp of rum flavor (if You like it)
  • 2 tbsp of baking powder
  • half bar of dark chocolate /melted/ (I used 85% of cacao contained)
  • 100 g= 2/5 cup of biscuit crumbs (You can replace it with flour, or with crushed biscuits)
  • half bar of dark chocolate /in little pieces/
   for the frosting:
  • 120 g = 1/2 cup of butter/margarine
  • 80 g = 1/3 cup of icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp of cocoa
  • 2 tbsp of peanut butter
  • a bar of dark chocolate /melted/
  • + chocolate and biscuit decoration
Preparation: 
1. Mix all the ingredients of the muffin base. (Firstly the eggs with the sugar, then with the rest of them, except the chocolate pieces. Mix them with a spatula, not with a mixer! This way, your muffins will be higher. :) ) 

2. Put muffin/cupcake liners to the muffin tray, and fill each with a big tablespoon of pastry. They should be half empty. :)

3. Put some chocolate pieces onto them. ;)


4. Preheat the oven to 200 degree C. And place bake them for about 35-40 minutes, on a lower degree (160-170 degree C)

5. With a mixer, mix the ingredients of the frosting. 

6. When the muffins are ready, make beautiful cupcakes, with the frosting, and if You feel like , You can decorate them with biscuits, wafer sticks, chocolate, etc... :)



I hope You like them. :D It was a great way to relax a bit after my exam. :)
