Chocolate Gingerbread Cupcakes

I’ve made gingerbread cupcakes before, but this month for my guest contributor post on Paula Deen, I wanted to take gingerbread cupcakes to the next level.  I added chocolate, a splash of coffee, and a bold, ginger orange glaze – and ended up with an unforgettable, sophisticated holiday cupcake.

I totally fell in love with the handmade paper gingerbread toppers from Etsy seller LOVE2STAMP4U.  If you’d rather use edible toppers, these chocolate gingerbread cupcakes would be adorable topped with real gingerbread men or homemade gingersnap cookies.

    These cupcakes sound wonderful. I am like you, I love to experiment with different flavors in a recipe. The addition of chocolate convinces me that they are good. I just found your blog tonight and glad I did because I would love you to share these or any gingerbread item on my Gingerbread Linky Party. It closes at midnight Mon. So there is still time. There is also a separate giveaway for 12 people. Hope to see you!——– Shannon
