What is a good dark chocolate cupcake recipe?

User Avatar
Ingredients 100g butter or margarine 100g muscovado sugar 100g self-raising flour, sifted 2 eggs 1 tablespoon cocoa powder 50g dark chocolate 2 tablespoons milk 300g dark chocolate for the icing 50g butter Method Make the dark chocolate cupcakes Preheat the oven to 180°C (Electric oven | Electric fan oven 160°C | Gas Mark 4) and place 12 paper cases into a muffin tin. Using an electric whisk, food processor or wooden spoon, beat the butter or margarine, sugar and cocoa powder until very light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating each one in well before adding the next. Carefully fold in the flour (and baking powder if using). Melt the chocolate and fold in to the mixture. Then thin the mixture with the milk. Alternatively, you can mix the ingredients together using a food processor. Use the pulse button to mix together in between adding the ingredients in the order above. Bake in the oven for 10 - 20 minutes. After 10 minutes, check to see if the chocolate cupcakes are ready by inserting a cocktail stick into one of the cupcakes. If it comes out dry then the cupcakes are done. If not, then back in the oven for a few minutes more. Don't overcook the chocolate cupcakes otherwise they will dry out. Lift the cupcakes out of the muffin tin and leave to cool on a wire rack. Make the dark chocolate icing Place the dark chocolate and butter in the microwave until just melted - a minute should do. Using an electric whisk, food processor or wooden spoon, beat the mixture until combined. When the cakes are cool, drizzle some chocolate icing mixture over the top of each cupcake. These chocolate cupcakes are best eaten on the day they are made.

Why does milk chocolate melt faster than dark chocolate?

User Avatar
Milk chocolate contains more fat, milk / milk fats / milk solids, and sugar, while dark chocolate contains a higher percentage of cocoa powder in it. The milk and fats are what melt at a lower temperature. Since dark chocolate has more cocoa powder and less fats, it will take longer to melt.

What is the best brand for dark chocolate?

User Avatar
The best dark chocolate is most certainly debatable in most peoples eyes. As a matter of fact, there are many people who do not even like or enjoy it to begin with. Most prefer the creamy flavored milk chocolate to it and it is those milk chocolate candy bars that have been the largest sellers for years. However, this type of chocolate has has an enormous resurgence in popularity in recent days and this is probably attributed to the fact that it has been documented to have some relatively good health benefits. And, it is not any particular dark chocolate brand that is better than any of the others. It is now that many primarily milk chocolate Therefore, lets explore some of the best which is offered and discuss some specifics about each of the brands that we cover. But, before we do, lets explain exactly what the difference is between dark chocolate and milk chocolate. The only difference between the two is that in milk chocolate, milk, milk powder, or condensed milk is added to give it that creamy taste. Dark chocolate only has fat and sugar added to it. It is the flavinoids, or more importantly epicatechin, that is the healthy ingredient. And, it is this specific ingredient that is thought to be especially good for the heart. It works to reduce blood clots which eventually lead to clogged arteries and subsequently heart attacks. However, this is provided the dark chocolate level of intake is limited to one point four ounces a day. It certainly does not help if a pound of chocolate is eaten daily. As far as the best of this type of candy is concerned, there are a tremendous amount of different dark chocolate bars that is on the market today, therefore, deciding upon the best ones will probably be a matter of personal preference. There are sweet types and bitter types. There are types that include nuts and fruits. And, there are many different types that have various degrees of amounts of the cocoa bean, the primary ingredient in chocolate, that have different tastes to them. Although, when it comes to some of the most sold versions, the Dove Dark Chocolate bar seems to be one of the top sellers, as is Hershey's special bars. These are bars that are predominantly domestically brands and there for are available where most, if not all, candy is sold. But, there are also many non-domestic brands that are on the market today that are also quite as good but are simply not as widely available too. As a matter of fact, some of those may be considered better tasting than many of the domestic brands. Therefore, when it comes to the best dark chocolate brands, this is most definitely should be left up to the consumer. Find out more tips about dark chocolate at
