How about both rolled in to one?
This weekend a bunch of my high school friends were all in town at the same time so we got together to hang out on Saturday night. I decided I should probably bake something (well Mo and B decided that for me). I got a cupcake cook book for my birthday and had been wanting to try something from it. I did not want to have 24 cupcakes laying around so making them to take somewhere else seemed like a good plan.
I perused the book for about 2 minutes before deciding on Rocky Road cupcakes. I remember Rocky Road as a delightful ice cream flavor from my summer working at Baskin Robbins so I assumed it would make a tasty cupcake.
1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon slat
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
4 ounces dark chocolate
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup milk
1/2 cup mini-marshmallows
1/2 cup chocolate chips, plus 1/2 cup for topping
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, plus 1/2 cup for topping
1/2 cup white chocolate chips for topping
1-Preheat oven to 350 F
2-Mix flour, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder and set aside
3-Melt chocolate. Beat in oil, egg and vanilla. Alternately add flour mixture and milk. Once batter is smooth fold in marshmallows, chocolate chips and walnuts.
4-Spoon batter into cupcakes (1/2 full). Mix the extra chocolate chips and walnuts and sprinkle over the batter.
5-Bake for 20 minute or until done
What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?
What other ice cream flavors would make a good cupcake?
Perhaps a nice Mint Chocolate Chip or a Neapolitan?
