Recipe: Valentines Day | Chocolate Cream Filled Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting

Hello :)


Valentines Day is this Sunday and you may think its just another day, which I mean technically it is. But why not celebrate those that you love?

Married, dating or single you can still treat those special people in your life to a little treat. And what's more special than a "Chocolate" treat made from the heart? These cupcakes are filled with a yummy homemade whipped cream and mascarpone filling which makes them extra fancy and super tasty.
















Recipe: 350F Bake 18-20 minutes


Cupcake:


2 Eggs

1 1/4 cups Sugar

8 tablespoons butter or canola oil

1/4 tsp. Baking Soda

1 1/4 Cups all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp. Vanilla extract

1 cup Milk ( I use 2%)

1/2 cup Cocoa Powder 



Filling:

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

3/4 cup powder sugar

1-2 tsp. Vanilla Extract 

4 oz Mascarpone Cheese 


Frosting:

1 1/4 Cups Butter

Just under 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder

3-4 Cups Powder Sugar

4-5 tablespoons Heavy cream ( As needed for consistancy you\"re looking for)



Cream your sugar and eggs in a mixing bowl or stand mixer. Add your butter and vanilla. Mix until butter has been combined with your other ingredients. Add in salt, baking soda & cocoa powder. Mix while slowly adding in your milk. Then add flour. Mixing well to throughly combine everything.

Fill your cupcake tin with liners. This batch made 18 cupcakes. Filling the liners 2/3 full. 

Bake at 350 for about 18-20s minutes. I always start checking around 15 mins to make sure I don't over cook them. Nobody likes a dry cupcake!


Once you've pulled them out of the over wait 45mins to an hour to let them cool.

When they've cooled off core out your middles. 


Filling:

In a mixing bowl and your heavy cream , vanilla & powder sugar. Using a hand mixer or your stand beat for 4-5 minutes until soft peaks begin to form. Once the mixture can stand up on its own add in your mascarpone cheese. TIP I let mine sit out a little before adding to the whipped cream. You want it cold but don\"t rock solid.

Then mix in util fully combined. Should take no longer than a minute or 2. Then filling in a pipping bag and cut off the tip and begin to fill your cored cupcakes.


Frosting:

Place your room temp butter in a mixing bowl and begin to mix. Add in a little cream to help it. Add cocoa and mix. Once the cocoa has combined into the butter begin to add in your powder sugar. Once you've added in all the sugar taste and make sure it doesn't taste like cocoa butter. If it does you can always add a bit more sugar. And if the frosting gets to thick add more heavy cream.




I hope you enjoy this Chocolate cupcake recipe and have a lovely Valentines Day with those you Love!
