MALTED CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES

we moved into a new studio that is more residential than our last location and i’m feeling very hopeful and excited about the possibility of starting an herb garden. we have a little outdoor space and i think it would be perfect considering how much we cook and how many herbs we buy from the store. i also love the idea of knowing exactly where our produce comes from and how it was treated. cooking with real ingredients is becoming increasingly important to us which is one of the reasons we love the Essential Goodness baking mixes by King Arthur Flour. they’re made with simple, real ingredients and they taste as good as something you’d make from scratch (but take wayyy less time).

several weeks ago we posted about the cheesecake bars we made with King Arthur Flour’s new line of Essential Goodness baking mixes. this time, we made their malted milk chocolate cupcakes (a mix that’s available exclusively at Target) and they couldn’t have been easier. the malt flavor is not overwhelming and provides a really nice depth of flavor paired with the milk chocolate.

we finished the cupcakes off with an array of edible flowering herbs, all of which could be removed before eating, if desired, but are also safe to eat. also, as an aside, my number one tool when it comes to frosting is this spatula. we use it all the time, it’s a game changer.

i can’t tell you how much i appreciate these box mixes and the fact that they are both reasonably priced and not full of junk (they also donate the cost of 1 meal to Feeding America for every box sold!). there are so many times that we’re going on a road trip or camping and i want a quick and easy dessert option and these fit that need perfectly. i made the cinnamon puff muffins for my out of town guests and they were a hit!

    It’s a box mux I believe Ms. Davis.

    I’ll be looking for this box mix on the website !!

    Michelle Desiderio says:

    This mix is ridiculous. $4.50 for SIX cupcakes. Who makes six cupcakes? For that price they couldn’t give enough mix for 12? Plus when you follow the directions the powder goes all over. For the work and the cost you can easily make a dozen from scratch and have the extra money for a latte.
