Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Raspberry Frosting

Posted on

I got the idea to make these when I saw a bag of Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares we have in the house (dark chocolate with raspberry filling, of course– and that’s what’s on top of the cupcake).

So this is what I did with the other half of the batter from the Dark Chocolate Cake that I posted earlier!

I LOVE the way the frosting turned out:

It has fresh raspberries in it!!!!

It is such a pretty color!!!!

It makes me smile!!!!

It’s so sweet!!!!

And totally yummy!!!!

WHOA.  I think I’ve had too much caffeine.  And sugar.

Anyway, I need to settle down and get back to my party prepping now.

But it is a pretty color, isn’t it?  🙂

Raspberry Frosting (from Southern Living)

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 16-oz.powdered sugar

Beat butter, raspberries, vanilla, and salt at medium speed until creamy.

Gradually add powdered sugar, beating at low speed until blended after each addition.
