I *heart* Chocolate Cupcakes

One of my very favorite bloggers, who I have been reading since Elizabeth was only 18 months old, is Catherine Newman of Babycenter's Bringing Up Ben and Birdy.  She now writes for (formerly Wondertime) as the Dalai Mama.  She posted this recipe less than 48 hours ago and now I'm posting about it; I needed to try it that badly.  I mean, how can you resist any recipe that begins with chocolate and coffee sitting in a bowl together?

I only made a half-recipe since I didn't want extra cupcakes around beckoning me.  Waxed paper was used to create the heart spaces.

The cupcakes were thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.  We'll definitely be adding these to the holiday rotation.  I might even be able to come up with other holiday shapes.  Hmmm...


  1. Joy, I love, love, love it! Thank you so much for posting the link. What gorgeous cupcakes (and gorgeous kid).

    xo Catherine

  2. These look so yummy!! Perfect for Valentines day!

  3. Those are so cute! So wax paper is the trick to those hearts huh? I'll have to try that.

  4. Thanks for the link - now if only you could shove a cupcake through the screen - they look so good!


I love to hear what you think!
