#26: Rocky Road Cupcakes

In September, I started a cupcake adventure. If you haven't read about it yet, you can do so here. ***

I was surprised by this recipe because it contains no sugar. The batter was thicker (not unlike cookie dough) and the yummy crumbles were added to the top before baking.

But what do you do when you get in such a hurry that the cupcakes are in the oven before you remember to take any pictures? Take a picture while they are baking, of course!

And when they come out of the oven, they look as scrum-diddly-umptious as THIS. Just look at those chocolate chips and walnut chunks. YUM!

Remember when I shared how to cover a circular board to create a platter? Another trick that I use to jazz up a boring old plate is to cut a piece of scrapbook paper to fit my square, white serving tray. That way, you can use any paper that  matches the theme of the party (or other dishes) AND clean-up is a bit easier because the paper catches most of the crumbs and spills!

YUM!
