Mocha Coffee Cupcakes infuse chocolate and coffee into a gorgeous cupcake. Better than a cup of joe!
I have never been a coffee drinker. I love the IDEA of coffee. All the cute mugs and fun flavors – it’s practically like drinking a dessert nowadays! There’s a whole aisle dedicated to coffee at the supermarket. There are aisles full of MACHINES to brew the coffee! You can buy machines to brew a short cup, a tall cup, a whole pot, good grief, you coffee drinkers are high maintenance... just saying.
I also feel super duper left out when all my friends are posting “Don’t talk to me before I have my coffee” memes on Facebook. Because I totally don’t get it. Is it really that bad? Is coffee really your whole life? Someone should maybe invent an alarm clock that has a small pot of coffee on it that starts brewing right before your alarm goes off. Surely that technology is available? It just seems like it should be a thing.
My husband has always been a coffee drinker. He likes it black with no sugar, which I don’t understand. If you have the option to add sugar and whipped cream and caramel sauce, why wouldn’t you? Don’t you like being happy? Don’t you like good things? Black coffee just seems like a punishment, if you ask me. Also, don’t people get hot drinking coffee in the warmer months? It makes me sweaty just looking at it.
I decided that I’m going to invent a new thing where we all just eat coffee cupcakes in the morning. You get your caffeine without sweating to death. And also, cupcakes are never wrong. Ever. It’s a rule of life.
These simple chocolate cupcakes have a hefty dose of instant coffee powder added, giving them a chocolate mocha flavor as well as a caffeine boost. Topped with sweetened whipped cream, they are pretty much perfect. Enjoy!
