One of my favorite flavor combos is coffee and chocolate.
One of my favorite things to do is bake.
Say hello to Mocha Brownie Cupcakes.
During the lazy days of summer I like to experiment in my baking. I seem to have more time to play around in the kitchen. My baking time is not interrupted by getting my daughter off to school and then meeting her bus in the afternoon.
I can play to my hearts content.
This summer I have been having a blast coming up with tasty ways to enjoy International Delight Iced Coffee.
Did you see the Mocha Caramel Macchiato Shooters I posted?
Or what about the Mocha Iced Coffee Shake?
Those two recipes are guaranteed to cool you off during the sweltering heat of summer.
This week I decided to go another route using ID Iced coffee.
I still had a half gallon of ID Mocha Iced coffee in the fridge from my shopping trip to Walmart last week.
What better way is there to use it then to make some cupcakes?
I love the way these cupcakes turned out.
The flavor of International Delight Mocha Iced Coffee is infused into the cupcake and frosting.
The cupcakes turned out with the flavor of a mocha brownie and the texture of a cupcake.
