To celebrate the new year, I baked for Hubby and I. Decadent cupcakes, of all things. Who’s gonna eat all this sweet goodness?!
Actually, eating it is no problem. Ha, ha!
These taste good! A wonderful blend of coffee and chocolate. It is a shame that my daughter-in-law does not live close enough to share these with me…she would love these!
I was lazy, and didn’t pipe the icing, but it didn’t affect the taste (hee, hee). I didn’t feel like looking for my piping tips, and it is quite possible that I gave them away anyway. So the cupcakes from the recipe look much better than mine!
I pinned the recipe to my Pinterest Sweet Tooth board. If you’d prefer to skip all of those confections and just see the cupcake recipe, then click here.
I recommend not putting the cookie in the icing unless you plan on having all of those cupcakes disappear the same day. The cookies become soggy (I should have known that, but I made this mistake anyway).
I have an insatiable sweet tooth, and I’ve discovered the joy of pinning decadent recipes to a Pinterest board that I call Sweet Tooth.
Summer has arrived and the tempting raspberries are ripening.
One of those recipes, Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake Cupcakes, from Annie’s Eats, is perfect for a sweet raspberry treat.
Make a graham cracker crust, add a cream cheese filling and top with fresh picked raspberries blended to a puree.
Swirl the puree and bake.
Easy and scrumptious!
The blackberries are flowering, and I’m keeping watch for more juicy, plump berries and sweet treats!
And let’s not forget the pie cherries! I share them with the birds, but I’ll still have enough to savor!
I love summer!
