Early last month I developed a cookie recipe based on my favorite Christmas treat, Terry's chocolate oranges. Right before Christmas I decided a cupcake version needed to happen as well.
These were scrumptious & had the perfect combination of chocolate and orange.
Now i really want a chocolate orange.
Terry's Chocolate Orange Cupcakes
-24 Dark chocolate cupcakes, baked (I just use a Betty Crocker box mix, replace the water with milk, and add 3 Tbsp dutch process cocoa. If you want, you can chop up some chocolate orange pieces very finely and mix those in with the batter!)
-Chocolate Orange frosting:
Use this chocolate buttercream recipe omit vanilla, and add 1 tsp pure orange extract.
Swirl frosting on to each cupcake using a 1M tip. Top with dark chocolate sprinkles and 1 slice Terry's chocolate orange. This frosting is pretty sweet and rich so a little goes a long way. A small swirl will do ya.
