Maple Chocolate Cupcakes

Topping off cupcakes with Wet Walnuts it’s GENIUS if you ask me.


Let’s see what else had that GENIUS quality this week:

1. repurposing and refinishing a bed that made all the difference in a bedroom.

2. spending 3 days with my mom, never enough time with family!

3. planning ahead on some baking projects, and getting lots of prep work done so that this week will go smoother.

Yeah so to wrap it up….. these cupcakes should be at the top of your next cupcake baking list, trust me on this.

  3. Let cupcakes cool.
  4. Add ¼ teaspoon maple extract to the buttercream frosting along with the white food coloring if you like the frosting not to have a tan color.
  5. Frost the cupcakes with a spatula leaving a well in the center of each cupcake
  6. spoon wet walnuts into the center of each cupcake.

    Chocolate might just gotten a little better with maple! The idea of wet walnuts is amazing!! I have to make my own maple syrup since I can´t find it here (argentina), and this is a great recipe.
