Hot Chocolate Cupcakes for Friends!

Happy Sunday Everyone!

I hope you had a day filled with happiness!  Church this morning was wonderful.  Honestly, when I got there I was a little grumpy and didn't have a good "listening" attitude.  After about 10  minutes into the talks I started feeling that they were all for me!  When I got to my 2nd hour of church, which is Gospel Principles for me, we had a GREAT lesson on the Life of Jesus Christ.  I am so grateful to have a perfect example to try and follow.  I have so many things that I need to work on but as long as I am striving to do what my Savior would do then it will all be okay.  I know that I am not perfect and will never be.  

Okay, enough churchy stuff!  LOL!  It was just a REALLY good church Sunday!  After church we came home and I decided to make some super yummy cupcakes for some new families in our Ward and some other new friends.  I have added the recipe below and some pics.



Hot Chocolate Cupcakes
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 eggs
1 packet Hot Chocolate
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line muffin pans with cupcake liners.
  2. In bowl of stand mixer combine dry ingredients: flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients: eggs, hot chocolate/milk mixture, vegetable oil and vanilla.
  4. Beat on medium speed until well combined, scraping down sides of bowl as needed.
  5. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full with batter.
  6. Bake for 16 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  7. Let cupcakes cool in pans for 5 minutes, then remove to wire racks to finish cooling.

  38. What was the recipe you used for the frosting? My frosting always turns out too runny or too stiff. I can enjoy a good cupcake without frosting but I would love to make better frosting for my husbands' sake!! I figured it was worth asking...
