Mini Chocolate Cupcakes

bridal shower 032

And the last dessert from Courtney’s bridal shower, adorable little chocolate cupcakes.  The recipe for the mini cupcakes comes from a blog called “Baking Bites” while the presentation idea comes from another blog called “Savannah Smiled”.  I love the presentation with the mini cupcakes sitting in a plastic goblet on top of candies and then topped with a decorative pick.  Since it was a wedding shower and it is so close to Valentine’s Day, I went with the conversation hearts for the candy and then to match those, little heart cut out on my cricut and attached to a toothpick.  Cute, cute, cute, people are so clever!  The cupcakes tasted ok, nothing special though.

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 cup cocoa

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup milk

1/2 cup oil

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

1  Preheat oven to 350.  Line 48 mini muffin cups with paper liners.

2  Sift together flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

3  In another bowl, whisk together milk, oil, vanilla and vinegar.  Pour into dry ingredients and stir just until combined and no streaks of flour remain.

4  Distribute batter evenly into prepared muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full.

5  Bake for 10 – 12 minutes, until a tester inserted in center comes out clean.
