    Chocolate cupcake recipe adapted from Alice Medrich for Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker

  • Ingredients:


    1 cup (4.5 ounces) all purpose flour
    1 cup plus 2 tablespoons (7.3 ounces) sugar
    1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons (1.5 ounces) SCHARFFEN BERGER Unsweetened Natural Cocoa Powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and warm
    2 large eggs
    Β½ teaspoon peppermint extract
    1 tablespoon instant coffee (recommended: Starbucks Via)
    1/2 cup hot coffee
    3/4 cup chopped peppermint Andes

  • Peppermint Swiss Meringue Buttercream:

    5 large egg whites
    11/2 cup sugar
    4 sticks unsalted butter, diced and softened
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon peppermint extract

    Chocolate Pouring Sauce:

    2/3 cups dark chocolate
    2 tablespoons heavy cream
    4 tablespoons powdered sugar, sifted
    4-5 tablespoons water, warm

  • Instructions:


    1. Add flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and mix thoroughly to combine. Add in the butter, eggs, and vanilla and beat on medium speed for one minute. Add half of the coffee into the mixture and beat for 20 seconds. Scrape the sides of the bowl and add remaining coffee. Beat for 20-30 seconds until the batter is smooth. Fold in chopped Andes. The batter will be thin enough to pour.

  • Divide it evenly among the lined cups. Bake 18-22 minutes just until a toothpick inserted into a few of the cupcakes comes out clean. Set the pan on a rack to cool. Frost the cupcakes when they are completely cool.

    TIP: For light tender cupcakes, spoon flour and cocoa lightly into measuring cups (instead of dipping the cups into the flour or cocoa) and then sweep the measures level without tapping or shaking them.

  • Peppermint Swiss Meringue Buttercream:

    1. Combine egg whites and sugar in a bowl placed over simmering water. Bring mixture to 160 degrees F while whisking constantly.

    2. Transfer mixture to stand mixer bowl, fitted with a whisk attachment and beat on medium high speed (speed 8 on a KitchenAid stand mixer) until mixture cools and doubles in volume and forms stiff peaks; about 10-12 minutes).

  • 3. Add butter in one piece at a time, mixing to incorporate after each addition. The mixture may appear clumpy and almost curdled looking at first-this is normal. Keep mixing and it will become even and smooth again.

    4. Add salt and peppermint extract and mix to combine.

  • Chocolate Pouring Sauce:

    1. Place chocolate and heavy cream in a bowl over simmering water. Let chocolate and cream sit for 2-3 minutes to melt without stirring. Then slowly stir mixture to combine.

    2.Add powdered sugar and mix to combine
    3.Add water 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing after each addition until pouring consistency is reached.

    4.Set aside and let sauce cool to warm.

  • To Assemble Cupcake:

    Frost cooled cupcakes with buttercream frosting. Freeze frosted cupcakes for ten minutes. Drizzle chocolate pouring sauce over frosting (reheat chocolate pour in microwave as needed to keep pouring consistency). Sprinkle chopped peppermint Andes on chocolate sauce. Finish with a peppermint candy on top.
