Dark Chocolate Cupcake and oranges from Sicily

Dark Chocolate Cupcake and oranges from Sicily: This morning I woke up with the desire to know something good, sweet and especially of chocolate. I didn't have time to do complicated desserts, but there is always time to make cupcakes! These chocolate cupcake are very easy to prepare, extra soft, full of dark chocolate and Sicilian oranges IGP (Etna oranges that I brought from home by plane), with a butter and chocolate frosting, Garnish with candied orange and redcurrant, because if I feel like chocolate I don't miss anything.

I prepared 6 and I ended up, one at breakfast, one lunch and one dinner, in two days flat. The dough is really super easy, the ingredients are all working together and then just expect only that they cook. Of course you can eat them as they are, like simple chocolate muffins, but let's face it, the frosting is extra sweet tooth. Because even the cupcake can be tremendously chic! Should you have in mind something particularly sinful for someone special, these cupcake could be for you. Otherwise, if you're looking for something lighter, Also have a look atVIDEO RECEIVED OF THE MIRTILLI MUFFINS you can find on my YouTube channel.
