~*Cupcake Lovely*~ Cherry Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

January’s ~*Cupcake Lovely*~

Cherry Chocolate Chip Caupcakes!

Cherry frosting

1 cup maraschino cherries
1/3 cup butter at room temperature
2 cups confectioners sugar
3 tablespoons half-and-half
Mix all ingredients except cherries at LOW. Add cherries and mix at MEDIUM-LOW until blended. Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips!
I added some of the cherry juice to enhance the flavor and color of the frosting which it did but it also thinned it more than I would have liked.¬† So add or don’t add at your own discretion. ūüôā

~*Cupcake Lovely*~Caramel Drizzled Pretzel Cupcakes

 I recently saw a photo of a cupcake topped with bits of pretzel. I thought it looked tasty but there was no recipe attached so I tweaked the idea a little and made it my own.

October’s¬†~*Cupcake Lovely*~

Chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting topped with bits of pretzel and drizzled with caramel.

Phew! That was a mouthful! ūüėČSalty





~*Cupcake Lovely*~ Christmas In July

I am one of those people who decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving and do not take it all down untill New Years day because I like to take in every last-minute of the season.

So¬†of course it¬†is only fitting¬†that I¬†am also one¬†of¬†those people¬†ūüėČ who¬†thoroughly enjoy Christmas in July.

Smack dab between six months separating Christmas Past and Christmas future lyes a plethora of home shopping network holiday deals, and indulging in seasonal movie classics.

My personal favorite is Home Alone 1 & 2!

So I decided to adapt the theme to ~*Cupcake Lovely*~

this month and alas you have

Christmas in July cupcakes.

It’s amazing what a few festive sprinkles will do to spruce up¬†regular old chocolate cupcakes!

~*Cupcake Lovely*~Cookies & Cream Cupcakes

A few years ago I made Mister Mister a Cookies & Cream ice-cream cake for his Birthday.

Since we liked the ice-cream cake so much and Cookies & Cream anything is¬†a favorite in our house I¬†made Cookies &¬†Cream cupcakes for March’s Cupcake Lovely. ūüôā¬†
