TWD: Chocolate-Chocolate Cupcakes

All packed up to go in my spiffy travel case

This week's selection was chosen by Clara of I Heartfood4thought and it provided a lot of excitement in our household (yay chocolate!). I did not get around to decorating my cupcakes in any spectacular Halloween fashion but I cannot wait to check out the blogs and see the creativity that everyone else came up with! I had big hopes for decorating them with a Penn State theme as I was bringing them over to a Penn State viewing party (like the team, the cupcakes were classics without any extra ornamentation!) :-)

My cupcakes were done in about 18 minutes and I was glad I checked early because there were so many reports of them being dry. I added nutella to half of my cupcakes which was a tremendous addition!


The lone survivor!
Yes, they do look dry now, but it was 2 days later! :-)

Nice cupcakes! I too filled with nutella but I thought it was a little too sweet (but that's probably just my not-too-sweet palate! :) Nice job!

The nutella looks like a great addition. I though about marshmallow cream, but neevr quite got around to it.

I'm a fellow TWD baker, and I was thinking that it would be nice if we all could chip in and get Laurie some small token/gift for all the work she does. Would you be willing to contribute? If I can get enough people, it would only be about $1 per person. No pressure :-) Let me know! bethberg12@yahoo.com
