Double Trouble Chocolate Cupcakes

double trouble chocolate cupcake

Today is my BF`s 26th birthday, and at his job it`s common to bring something sweet to work on their birthdays. So yesterday was filled up with cupcakes all over the place. I made like three batches of cupcakes and I also started on a Raspberry mousse cake that`ll be the birthday cake here at home. One of the cupcake recipes I made was this super delicious Double Trouble Chocolate Cupcakes. They contain chocolate in both the batter and the frosting. It`s such a treat, so I hope the people at BF`s work enjoy them!

Double Trouble Chocolate Cupcakes

3 eggs
3.5 oz. dark chocolate
4-5 tbsp. sour cream/yoghurt

2 tsp. baking powder
2 tbsp. cocoa

Turn the oven on 390 F.
In a small bowl, add chocolate and cocoa. Heat up water and pour it over. Stir well, and make sure all of the chocolate is melted. Let cool off. Mix sugar and butter until it gets light and fluffy. Add one egg at a time. Add flour and baking powder. Mix gently. Now add the chocolate mixture and the sour cream /yoghurt. Mix gently.
Fill the cupcake tin about 2/3 in each. Bake in the oven for 13 minutes.

Beautiful Gift

As I mentioned earlier, I received a delayed birthday gift yesterday, from my BF`s sister. A beautiful candle tin-house holder, with a violet candle and cute matching napkins.

And I got to use the napkins today already, for a little snack; homemade chocolate chip & fudge cookies drizzled with sea salt. Dangerously good!
