Piglet Chocolate-Truffle Cupcakes



What's your favourite chocolate brand? I think this is a very difficult question...;)! I love chocolate, especially dark chocolate because it doesn't taste very sweet but yet so elegant. My favourite chocolate is German and it's called Sarotti. I especially adore their truffles. You can see yourself that these balls of goodness look very irresistible, don't you think?



Imagine having these goodies inside a cupcake...!




Inside a piglet-cupcake to be exact :D!
Hmmmm....!

Ingredients - adapted from Anncoo's recipe
  • 250 g butter
  • 225 g sugar (I used less)
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 3 eggs
  • 375 g milk
  • 450 g flour
  • 20 g baking powder
  • Sarotti truffles
Directions:
  • Beat butter sugar, egg and vanilla essence.
  • Sift flour and baking powder and continue to beat the batter.
  • Add milk and mix well.
  • Pour batter into cupcake cups, about 3/4 full.
  • Add 1 truffle for each cup.
  • Bake at 180° for around 25 minutes.
  • Now, let the cupcakes cool down.
  • Decorate the cupcakes with white chocolate icing (with a drop of pink food colouring). Use chocolate chips for the eyes and marzipan for the ears and snouts.



I still need to practise pouring while chocolate neatly...:c

By the way, last but not least, I would like to thank you Kristy from My Little Space for the lovely award...! Love it, especially because the colour suits my blog skin :D).
