Tuesdays With Dorie: Chocolate Chocolate Cupcakes



This was my favorite Tuesday With Dorie so far because it's my favorite...lots of chocolate! It was a great choice by Clara of I Heart Food 4 Thought!


I think I'm the only one who didn't do a Halloween themed cake, but I still had lots of fun adding variety to mine. All the batter made 3 of the cutest mini bundt cakes. I just got the mini bundt cake pan and this was the perfect opportunity to use it. One cake was filled with white chocolate chips, one with peanut butter chips, and my favorite had some peppermint extract added to the batter along with some mint chocolate chips. The cake was super moist and delicious. The glaze was incredible and I loved the little crunch of the chocolate sprinkles on top. I really can't wait to make this recipe again very soon!
Happy Birthday to my good friend, Jen, today! If you weren't all the way across the country from me, I would love to share this cake with you! Love you lots and hope you have a great day!

What a fun way to make these and in three varieties! Clever. I'll bet it helped the cake to be more moist. The little cupcakes were a bit dry.

I so want chocolate right now! My computer has crashed so I am not able to blog very much this week! I am so missing it! At least I can sneak peaks at your stuff and enjoy through your baking & cooking! Thanks Becky!
