Box of Chocolate, Cupcakes

We are approaching that day! Here is a very cute recipe idea that you could do for your valentine. These are my chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting.

I've seen this done many times on the internet, and I'm pretty sure the idea originated from "hello cupcakes". Don't take my word for it though, I may have no idea what I'm talking about.

So very simple, Take a mini cupcake and frost it with a butter knife or a 9-in offset spatula (always wanted to buy one of those  but I'm saving money). Melt some white chocolate and dig around for any colorful candy that you may have on hand. I used heart shaped sprinkles, candy corn, edible silver balls, and white chocolate melting wafers.

There's no limit to what you can do with this so just play around with patterns and see where it takes you. If I mess up a pattern I'd just remove the frosting and start over. The problem I found with candy corn is that it soaks up all the moisture in the frosting and bleeds color all over your finger when you try to pick it up. I suggest either putting them on right before you serve or try a different candy.

I love that these are bite sized because I don't feel too guilty about eating them. On the other hand, I'd eat 10 of them without realizing it until I see a bunch of wrappers in front of me.
