  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs

  • Icing:
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup icing sugar

Directions

  • Directions:
  • 1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  • 2. Prepare 2 muffins tins, either line with cupcake papers or grease.
  • 2. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in bowl and mix with whisk.
  • In another bowl beat together the eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla until creamy. Add the flour mixture to wet ingredients beating just until incorporated. Mix in coffee until smooth (don't over-mix).
  • 3. Fill prepared tins with batter 2/3 full. Bake at 350F for 22-24 minutes, until tester comes out clean. Cool cupcakes completely.
  • 4. To make filling: combine chocolate chips and coffee in a double boiler of simmering water. Stir until melted, let this mixture cool slightly.
  • 5. In a large bowl, whip the cream until soft peaks form. Fold in the melted chocolate just until well blended.
  • 6. Cut out a cone shape about 3/4" thick from the top of the cup cake. Take the tip off of this.
  • 7. With pastry bag and tip fill each cupcake with filling and place the cut out cones on top. Place in frig to chill.
  • 8. Make Icing: In a double boiler heat cream until just starting to simmer. Add chocolate chips and stir until melted. I added icing sugar to this and made an icing. Maybe about a cup or so until it is the thickness you wish. Janet is hungry made a glaze. Once the cream and chocolate were melted she dipped the cupcakes in this mixture.

Notes

One of my co-workers had a birthday in December. I decided to try these cupcakes I found at Janet is Hungry, they looked like they would be delicious and they were. Everyone liked them at work.
