Raspberry Hot Chocolate Cupcakes

The Story:

Nothing is more cozy than being snuggled-up under a blanket with a mug of hot chocolate.  And on those nights when it’s just me and my chick flick of choice–which tends to be You’ve Got Mail–raspberry hot chocolate is the prefect choice.[end-story]

    Hello Lizzy. I was wondering could we use the raspberry filling in the same manner as the Caramel Apple Cupcakes? I think I would like to have the raspberry baked into the cake.

    Thanks for the recipe. Looking forward to trying my two favorite ingredients…chocolate & raspberries.

    I just made these, and they are heavenly!!!! The cake is so light and has such a wonderful texture and a great chocolatey flavor!! The only change I will make next time I make these, is I would run the raspberry filling thru a strainer to take out the seeds, the seeds kind of got stuck in my teeth! An overall wonderful cupcake, and I love all your recipes!! 🙂

    I just made these cupcakes for my daughters winter-themed birthday party. They are fabulous and so fun! I wanted to comment that after filling my cupcake papers 3/4 full, as instructed, I only ended up with 16 cupcakes. There is no way I could have gotten 24 out of that amount of batter! Perhaps if I had done mini-cupcakes I could have gotten 24. So, if you are feeding a crowd, double the recipe.

    Hi! I had a quick question – if I want to make more of a marshmallow creme/raspberry filling (like the one in your other raspberry hot chocolate cupcake) – can I use a marshmallow creme/raspberry jam combination, and if so, what amounts would you suggest? Or a creme/pie filling combination?

    Thanks so much! Your recipes are fabulous!

    […] November 8, 2011 by Lizzy Mae Early · 43 Comments The Story:          Guess what is a staple in my diet.  No…not cupcakes.  But chocolate milk.  I have one just about everyday.  Well, now that we are approaching the winter months, I think I will be making the transition to the warmer alternative. Be sure to check out my latest version of the chocolate raspberry cupcakes. […]
