Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cupcake – Valentine Party Cheap Healthy Dessert

  1. In a small heatproof bowl, whisk the boiling water and the cocoa powder together until smooth and then set it aside to cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Fill the cupcake tins with paper liners.
  3. In the bowl of a standing mixer, whip together the butter and the sugar. When it’s completely combined, add the eggs and whip until fluffy.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add the cooled liquid chocolate to the batter and then add the dry ingredients and whip together until you have a smooth batter.
  5. Evenly distribute the batter among the cupcake liners, filling them about 2/3rds full. Bake the cupcake sat 350 degrees about 15-17 minutes. Remove from the oven and set out to cool completely.

Make the frosting:

  1. In the bowl of a standing mixer, whip together the minced strawberries, soft cream cheese, soft butter, powdered sugar and a pinch of salt. Whip until the frosting is light and fluffy and the strawberries are well dispersed throughout the frosting and have tinted it pale pink.
  2. Generously frost the cupcakes (I used a pastry bag and a large star tip, but you could just use a butter knife too.)
  3. Melt the 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate in a small heatproof bowl in the microwave until smooth. Dip the clean, dry strawberries in the melted chocolate, shake of the excess and gently place each strawberry on the top of one of the cupcakes. Add a few sprinkles to the top of the cupcake and strawberry if desired.
