Day 222 – White Chocolate Cupcakes

10 Mar

On this (probably chilly) Monday morning, I thought we could use a little indulgence.  Maybe a little music.  A truffle.  Some white chocolate.  What do you think? Alright, check out the Musical Monday selection and then check out these White Chocolate Cupcakes (recipe below from The Pampered Chef) — spoiler alert — they’re stuffed with a truffle!

Alright, time to get indulgent!

White-Chocolate-Cupcake

The cake is a very strange consistency. It’s almost like a thick, soft sugar cookie. A little crumbly, but not dry. It’s got a very even taste. Not stand-out flavors.

White-Chocolate-Truffle

If you love white chocolate, this is the cupcake for you. From top to bottom, that’s what this is. My truffle inside still had a little crunch to it, which was nice. Otherwise it’s a smooth, creamy white chocolatey cupcake.
