A new cupcake buddy sent me this recipe. I was skeptical at first but decided to try it out. I think that sometimes people get too crazy trying out different kinds of cupcakes. While surfing around the internet I found cupcake versions of desserts and what a disappointment! Majority of what made me willing to try and then enjoy this cupcake is that it is all about the flavors. This was not an attempt to make a rootbeer float in a foil cup! Another thing, the recipe makes a perfect dozen.
Putting together the ingredients was easy and took very little time, always a good thing.
Their color was the same as the batter when I took them out of the oven.
As they cooled, they grew darker.
I don't know how much chocolate I used!
I broke a chunk from this GIANT block of dark chocolate.
I did adjust the recipe for 2 tsp maple syrup and 1 tbsp vanilla soymilk.
I thought to save money I would use plastic sandwich bags instead of icing bags.
Worked out perfectly!
This was my favorite part, as you can see I got carried away with these last few.
Oh, but disaster struck!
The second plastic bag, even with its zip lock made more of a mess!
(No pictures because my palms and the counter were covered in icing.)
I suppose I will have to find sturdier bags or use the real thing.
I would have put more icing, but considering my icing bag trouble, the little bit I was able to get on them was enough for me.
I'm advertising again, but this really is the best rootbeer!
