Jack O' Lantern Chocolate cupcakes




When I though I was ok with my Halloween recipes my Mom said:
I have something for you! and show me these Little Jack O'Lantern decorations  so, I have to make and other Halloween recipe, I think in chocolate because  I love how look the lantern with  dark chocolate!
(An Espe was agree with me :)
I adapted the chocolate cakes from a little book Cupcakes and Muffins from Parragon Ltd.
Im sharing with Cook your books of Joyce of Flavours Kitchen!







Ingredients
(10 cupcakes)
4 tablespoons butter
room temperature
120 grams of sugar
2 eggs
200 grams self raising flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons chocolate powder
2 tablespoons milk

garnish
200 grams of dark chocolate melted
150 ml heavy cream
1 tablespoon sugar

Method


Preheat oven to 180°c degrees . Line 10 cup muffin tins with paper liners; set aside.

 In a bowl beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy cream, Stir in the eggs one at a time.
In another bowl sift the flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and chocolate and incorporate it into the cream with a metal spoon.
Pour the milk and stir. Spread this mixture into the paper liners.
Bake the cakes for 10-15 minutes, or until they rise and gain consistency
Cool on wire rack.


For garnish

Chop the chocolate and put  in a medium saucepan, add the heavy cream and heat in a double boiler until chocolate melt beat a little to thicken and let it cool until it has the right consistency to  decorate, if too thick back to warm up a bit.

Enter the ganache into a piping bag and decorate cakes. You can garnish with whatever you like, beads, small pumpkin etc. ..

Cupcakes de chocolate para Halloween








Pensaba estar lista con las recetas de Halloween pero mi mamá me tenía de regalo estas calabacitas para cupcakes así que tuve que pensar en otra receta.
Pensé en cupcakes de chocolate porqueme gusta el contraste del chocolate con las calabacitas.
Quedaron muy buenos y la crema de chocolate super!
La adapté de mi libro Cupcakes y muffins.
