I have the cookbook, Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey,: Desserts for the Serious Sweet Tooth and I am embarrassed to say it was a good read, but I hadn't used it yet. But, oh, will I be using it again! Here we go!
(I apologize for what I am about to show you that will sabotage every calorie count that you have completed this week, and make your mouth water...and...)
It's a simple recipe, really... flour, sugar, brown sugar, salt, baking soda, oil, boiling water, vanilla, and...apple cidar vinegar? Yep. But didn't they bake pretty?
Here, let me show you again:
And then you get to dip them in that bowl of chocolate glaze. Do you really want to know what's in there? Butter, cocoa, vanilla, and semi-sweet chocolate chips...topped off with light Karo syrup.
Let the cupcakes cool, then dip...double dip...triple dip?
And now look at these pretties.
I could hardly keep the kids at bay while the icing set...finally..."Bo, do you want a cupcake?" (loud crash and "Ow.") He hurt himself trying to get to the kitchen at lightning speed. "How were they?" Great, mom.
Tomorrow, I will update you on my diet. haha!
