Make It Monday



It's National Chocolate Cupcake Day!
So naturally I had to make...

Chocolate Cupcakes!


And not just ANY chocolate cupcakes


Cannibal Cupcakes


White Chocolate Chocolate Cannibal Cupcakes
to be precise.



They are white chocolate and chocolate cupcakes that 
ATE the mini versions of their opposites.

Pretty cool, huh?

I thought so.

Okay so how do you do it you ask?

Well let me show you...


What you need:
Chocolate Cupcake Recipe
White Chocolate Cupcake Recipe
Mini Cupcake Pan & Liners
Regular Cupcake Pan & Liners
Frosting of Your Choice
(I used Marshmallow Crème Frosting)

What to do:

1. Mix BOTH batters according to the recipe.

2. You are going to bake the MINI cupcakes first. Line the pans and bake 12 white chocolate cupcakes and 12 chocolate cupcakes. They will take about 10 -15 minutes to bake. Watch them because they can burn quickly.
While they are baking ... mix your frosting.

3. Remove them from the oven and cool for 5 minutes in the pan. Then cool them on the wire rack completely.


4. Once they are cooled you want to get them naked and put a small hat on them.
OR
Take off the liners and place a little icing on the top of them.
Your choice.
It does not have to be pretty because they are going inside the cupcake anyway.
 
5. Now we move on to the big ones.
Line your regular size cupcake pan and put just enough batter in each cup to cover the bottom.

6. Place the naked hat wearing MINI cupcakes inside of the regular cupcake pan.
White chocolate
Mini should be put inside of the Chocolate.
Chocolate
Mini should go inside of the White Chocolate.
sadly I forgot to take a picture of this.

7. Pour some more batter on TOP of the mini cupcakes. Make sure to cover the frosting with some batter but DO NOT over fill the cups. You want it to be about 2/3 full.*
sadly I forgot to take a picture of this.

8. Bake cupcakes as normal. 20-30 minutes depending on your oven. I slightly over cooked mine (I was on the phone).


As you can see, the frosting takes on this flaky crispy state once baked but the ugliness it creates will be covered with frosting and will still taste YUMMY!

9. Use the remaining frosting to top your now COOLED cupcakes and enjoy!

 
Happy National Chocolate Cupcake Day!

* you may also want to place a cookie sheet below the cupcake pan just in case.
