Some Recipe Notes:

  • An easy tool for scooping cupcake batter is an ice cream scooper. Yep. I use something similar to this one. Works like a dream.
  • Not to sound like a broken record, but, be sure your butter is softened before making your frosting. If it’s too cold, your frosting will not have a nice, creamy consistency.
  • My cupcakes are just sprinkled with mini chocolate chips. But, if you like, you can stir them right into the frosting, instead. About a 1/2 cup should work fine.
  • You may have extra frosting leftover, after frosting your cupcakes. If you do, store any leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator.
  • If you don’t have any buttermilk on hand, you can replace it with regular whole milk.

Start your week right —-eat a cupcake. 😍
