Chocolate Mocha Cupcakes

Chocolate and coffee in one recipe!! A combination that is hard to resist even for strict dieters πŸ˜‰ And a favourite combo for my sis! My sister is the greatest critic of all my recipes. You will not believe but she gives all my baked goods a rating out of ten!! And Its difficult to get a perfect 10 from her.

But when she took a bite of this cupcake, her eyes almost popped out! She gave me a 12 on 10 πŸ˜€

Chocolate and Coffee did the thing! got me an exaggerated rating πŸ˜‰

They vanished the same day they were created πŸ˜€

Whipped cream frosting is always healthier when compared to a traditional buttercream, atleast sounds guiltfree bcos of no butter!! But it needs to be whipped with care. It takes only a few minutes for whipped cream to turn into butter. Take care with that.

Now assemble your chocolate mocha cupcakes. Top each with lots of chocolate ganache and then pipe swirls of mocha frosting. Top with chocolate chips or chocolate sprinkles!!
