Orange Milk Chocolate Cupcakes

A couple of weeks ago I decided to experiment with some new buttercream flavours. I thought it would be fun to create some along a Christmas theme and as it turned out I found not one, not two, but five new flavours. So this week is now officially Festive Buttercream Week 🙂 A week of different flavours, perfect for adding a festive twist to your cakes.

Orange Milk Chocolate Cupcakes

Who would have ever thought that the flavors of orange and chocolate would be such a delight to the taste buds. The first time I ever had the pleasure of eating them together was when I bought a chocolate orange ball. It was in the shape of an orange , but made of chocolate. You could even break it into segments like an orange.  One taste and I was hooked.

Orange Milk Chocolate Cupcakes …milk chocolate on the inside and on top just because I love milk chocolate.  The addition of orange zest and juice gives you a subtle flavor of orange that marries so well with the creaminess of  milk chocolate.

As you start mixing the recipe together you’re going to notice that this is a very thick batter, it almost has the appearance of a cookie dough instead of a cupcake batter. Fill your cupcake liners 3/4 full, sprinkle with chips and bake.

These cupcakes are perfect all by themselves, but if you want to kick them up a notch, serve them warm with ice cream. Orange Milk Chocolate Cupcakes, Enjoy!
