Kahlua Chocolate Cupcakes are a perfect dessert idea for chocolate and coffee lovers, featuring rich and decadent chocolate and coffee flavor with a touch of Kahlua.
I think that cupcakes are one of my most favorite desserts as they are easy to make and you can create so many different flavors for any discerning palette. In addition, it is a perfect portion if you control your sweets. If you are a coffee lover like me, you should appreciate my Kahlua Chocolate Cupcakes that have a rich and decadent chocolate and coffee flavor with a touch of Kahlua.
For real chocolate lovers, do not forget to check my Julia Child’s Chocolate Mousse recipe. And if you love cupcakes like me, check out my recipe for Blueberry Lemon Cupcakes.
If you have read my previous recipes for chocolate cupcakes, like Chocolate Orange Cupcakes and Chocolate Cupcakes with Caramel, you already know that I like to add melted dark chocolate to them, which gives luscious richness to the dessert. However, this time I used instant espresso coffee and Kahlua coffee liqueur. Believe me, it brings these cupcakes to a whole new level!
I also add Kahlua to my buttercream frosting. Though, you can skip this step if you don’t want too much alcohol in your dessert. I add a little bit of heavy cream and beat it together in the very end for a few minutes, whipped cream helps the frosting to have more of an airy texture.
