If you are a fan of Chocolate Chip Cookies or Muffins, you will definitely love my new Vanilla Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting. These are my two most beloved flavors in any type of dessert. Like classic black and white, these two flavors are always in “fashion” and will be a great choice for your after-dinner treat.
I already mentioned in my previous posts that I love cupcakes due to their size for portion control. Seriously, if you give me a chocolate chip cake or cookies, I would definitely eat more than allowed. Here, I have my best flavors all in one cupcake that will fulfill my cravings and keep me happy.
I played around with chocolate buttercream frosting and made it super light and fluffy thanks to adding some whipped cream. The secret is, using a paddle attachment in a stand mixture, first beat the butter with powdered sugar and cocoa powder for about 5 minutes until it is light and fluffy, then add cold heavy cream and, using a whisk attachment, whisk it until well incorporated and has stiff peaks. I can tell you that it makes a big difference in the consistency, by creating a light and more airy texture.
