Chocolate chip cupcake dreams...

Posted by Sweet 2ooth Treats at 10:41 AM
So I couldn't sleep and remembered I saw an awesome recipe for chocolate chip cupcakes from one of my baking books unfortunately I had no eggs :( I did not want to go to the store, so I settled for a chocolate cupcake I had made earlier in the week and had frozen .I brought one down and let it thaw...as it was thawing I thought what would make for a better chocolate cupcake than some good old American butter cream.

Then my mind wondered again should I go get the eggs in my jammies and risk running into some1 I know at the store..aughhh...I was set on those oh so scrumptious chocolate chip cupcakes and then my Aha! moment why not chocolate chip butter cream.

I didn't feel like turning on my laptop so ..I decided to go for the good old Pastry Chef cook book from school looked up chocolate chip cookies...which I know, I know ,I should at least have somewhat memorized..and took out the eggs (really had no choice )

I gotta tell you it was really good! So I figured why not share the recipe for those who might have a midnight sweet tooth..
