Chocolate Chip Vanilla Cupcakes with Chocolate Chip Buttercream
simple and straightforward really. Read my post on my new chocolate cupcakes to get the recipe for the cake part. Just add some chocolate chips to it! (can you tell that I'm tired and trying really hard to get this post up before I zone out?) Anyway, my recommendation for these pretty babies, is to chop your chocolate chips. The batter is pretty light, and I think the chips would sink. And plus, this also ensures that every bite has some yummy melted chocolate in it. You can't go wrong with that! For the frosting, I just used my standard buttercream. 1 cup butter, 2 cups powder sugar..mix until light and fluffy, add some vanilla and milk to make it smooth and add more of the chopped chocolate. My kids loved these, so did my honey..even though he claims to be sick and tired of cupcakes. I only ate a half of one! (trying to stay away from sugar..you know, living here in SU, got to be ready for swimming suits...) :)
