Cute Coffee Cupcakes

20 Oct

This is not my recipe nor my idea.  Please visit this link to get the tutorial and full recipe. it’s so amazing!!

To make your own Coffee Creations Cupcakes, you’ll need the following:
12 chocolate cupcakes baked in brown paper liners
1 cup dark cocoa candy melts
1 cup chocolate frosting
1/2 teaspoon espresso powder
1 cup chocolate jimmies
1 cup whipped vanilla frosting
Ground cinnamon
Small lemon slice candies
Chocolate coated wheat sticks

Here are Karen and Alan’s easy decorating steps:
1. Place the dark cocoa candy melts in a resealable plastic bag and melt in the microwave, massaging the bag every 15 seconds until smooth. Draw the coffee cup handles on a sheet of paper and place it on a cookie tray. Layer a sheet of wax paper on top of the paper featuring the drawings. Snip a small corner from the bag and pipe a thick outline of the handles by tracing the drawings with melted chocolate. Repeat to make 12 handles. Refrigerate until set for about 5 minutes.

2. Place the chocolate frosting in a microwave-safe bowl, and add the espresso powder. Heat this bowl for about 10 seconds in the microwave, and stir it until achieving the desired texture — slightly runny, but still with body. Gently dip the cupcakes into the frosting just up to the paper liner. Allow the excess frosting to drip off into the bowl, pat them on the bottom to shake off the final drips, then turn upright.
