Happy Monday everyone! It’s Rebecca from Living Better Together again and I’m so excited to be back here with all of you this month on Place of my Taste! Can you believe that Christmas is NEXT WEEK! I can’t, I still have so much to do, maybe I should have spent less time baking these last few weeks and more time shopping and wrapping, oh well. It all worked out in your favor anyway, because of all that baking I’m sharing these amazing Tuxedo Cupcakes with all of you today. These dark chocolate fudge cupcakes are fluffy and rich and dipped in ganache before being topped with a simple white chocolate creme frosting.
You’re all pretty convinced that I should just keep baking now, right? Well if these cupcakes don’t convince you, I bet my Loaded One-Pot Caramel Fudge Brownies will! I started with the base of the majority of my chocolate cupcakes and went from there. Tuxedo cupcakes are such a simple and perfect blend of flavors that I’m really amazed I had never make them before now. They’re seriously a little cup of pure sugar bliss! And it’s a bliss I want to share with all of you, because you deserve it!
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your holiday season and I’ll see you back here in January!
