I am volunteering in the high school guidance office again today. During this scheduling time (2.5 weeks in February… this is my 7th year volunteering for this annual process), the employees in Student Services bring in special lunches for everyone to share. They have always been gracious enough to invite me to eat with them on the days I volunteer. On Friday, I looked at the lunch schedule and spoke with the person responsible for today’s lunch, and offered to bring dessert. As long as CHOCOLATE was acceptable. 😉
I made Black Bottom Cupcakes (top right), Mini Cheesecake Bites (bottom), and Chocolate Cupcakes with Fudge Frosting (top left).
Looks like a lot of work, right? Not really. I made the 2 parts to the Black Bottom Cupcakes recipe, but baked some of them individually (hence the Mini Cheesecake Bites and Chocolate Cupcakes). And I have already shared my favorite Fudge Frosting Recipe in THIS Chocolate Cupcake post from April 2013. I got 84 treats out of the single batch recipe today (I did aim to make them a little small – maybe my inner Top Chef thought we were doing an Amuse Bouche challenge!).
Rather than typing my Black Bottom Cupcake recipe , I found ALMOST the exact one at AllRecipes.com – Black Bottom Cupcakes Recipe . The difference – my recipe calls for a 12 ounce bag of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (to be added to the white part of the recipe). I normally get 60 Black Bottom cupcakes (mini muffin pans) out of the recipe.
Thanks for stopping by!
