Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcakes

They say that the cupcake craze is over. I don’t know who “they” are, but I don’t agree. Sure there are new things that are trendy right now, however cupcakes will always be adorably sized…and perfect for sharing! Plus, getting to use different colored/themed wrappers is a lot of fun.

I know the people at Jorge’s office wouldn’t be diving into a half eaten layered cake…but when I send in cupcakes they have no idea that half of them have already been inhaled! 😉

This cupcake flavor combination has been floating around in my head for a couple of years now. One of my favorite treats is a steaming cup of Mexican Hot Chocolate. I love the spicy chocolate and the delicious whipped cream on top.

In cupcake form, that translated into a rich dark chocolate cupcake and vanilla whipped cream that are both spiced with hints of cinnamon and spicy cayenne pepper. In one word, this cupcake is Divine.
