Swiss Cupcats – Toblerone Chocolate Cupcakes

Halloween is coming up, but that also means that it´s soon time for a good colleague of mine to move to Switzerland. So in honour of my colleague, I will treat you with my Toblerone Cupcakes, dressed up as cupcats for Halloween. This recipe will give you 50-60 small cupcakes.

Ingredients
135 gram (4,8 oz) melted Toblerone (original or dark)
150 gram (5,3 oz) softened butter
100 gram (3,5 oz) sugar
3 eggs
250 gram (8,8 oz) plain flour
1 tbsp cocoa
2 tsp vanilla sugar
2 tsp baking powder
0,75 dl (1/3 cup) milk

Toblerone buttercream frosting
70 gram (2,5 oz) softened butter
90 gram (3,2 oz) melted Toblerone (original or dark)
2 tsp vanilla sugar
100 gram (3,5 oz) powdered sugar
1-2 tbsp milk

Decoration
Small Toblerone, sprinkles, raspberries, chopped roasted almonds.

How to do it

  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC / 390ºF.
  2. Melt the Toblerone chocolate.
  3. Beat together the butter with the sugar in a large bowl. I use a stand mixer, but you may just as well use an electric hand mixer.
  4. Add the melted Toblerone.
  5. Add the eggs, one by one.
  6. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and vanilla sugar.
  7. Slowly add the mixed dry ingredients to the mixture.
  8. Add the milk to the mixture until you have a smooth batter.
  9. With a couple of spoons, transfer the batter to small cupcake liners in cupcake form.
  10. Bake the cupcakes in the middle of the oven for 8-10 minutes, or until a skewer put in the centre of the cupcake comes out clean.
  11. Take the cupcakes out of the oven and the cupcake form, and let them cool down on a grid.
  12. For the buttercream frosting, beat the butter and then add the melted Toblerone.
  13. Use a stand mixer with a whisk or an electric hand mixer. Slowly add the vanilla sugar and the powdered sugar. Then add the milk, and mix until smooth.
  14. When the cupcakes have cooled down, cover them with the buttercream using a cake piping tool, a knife or a spatula.
  15. I have decorated the cupcakes with pieces of small Toblerone (original, dark and white) and orange/gold pearl sprinkles, but why not try with raspberries (fresh or dry) or chopped and roasted almonds.

Happy Halloween and Au Revoir to my colleague!

PS: I´m not sponsored, I just love Toblerone…
