Chocolate Chip Cupcakes



These chocolate chip cupcakes are pleasantly intense with chocolate and combines so perfectly well with the ground almonds added to them. They taste so good, its hard to stop with just one cupcake!







This chocolate chip cupcakes recipe is a different version of my chocolate cupcake recipe. Not only because this one has chocolate chips in it, but also because the rest of the ingredients used are also different to a certain extent. 


Firstly, I use brown sugar instead of normal caster sugar. Use of brown sugar gives the cupcakes a richer molasses-like taste. To add on to that, I also use ground almond and this gives the cupcakes a slightly nutty flavor. Together, these ingredients yield wonderfully rich and delicious nutty and chocolaty chocolate chip cupcakes.

As seen in the image above, I have decorated my cupcakes with mini marshmallows. I have provided step by step instructions on how to do this here. Its so simple, it can even be used as a decorating project for kids.

I topped each cupcake with a thin layer of chocolate ganache and then I attached mini marshmallows in circles, starting from the outside and working the way towards the center. The chocolate ganache acts as a glue to hold the marshmallows in place. And since these were chocolate chip cupcakes, I decided to add more chocolate chips as part of the deco. Finally I attached one chocolate chip to one marshmallow, limiting only to the center marshmallows and leaving the outer layer of marshmallows plain.
