Copycat Starbucks Double Chocolate Fleck Frappuccino Cupcakes

There are squiggly petty reddish lines all over my calculator right straight off equally I effort to figure out the right means to spell Frappu— Frappe—Frappuc (omg… 1 “c” or two?)… Frappuccino without looking it up.  Well in that place it is, I lastly had to laissez passer upward in addition to Google it, in addition to skilful matter I did because manifestly my calculator doesn’t recognize frappuccino equally a existent word, anyway (it keeps suggesting cappuccino”), in addition to hence those squiggly lines aren’t going anywhere.

Spelling (and misspellings) aside, piece it’s pretty well-documented that I don’t similar coffee, every few weeks I’m struck yesteryear an insufferable craving for a frappuccino… but there’s a really detail sort that I crave every time.

I’m absolutely caput over heels for  Starbucks Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccinos.  Those ridiculous,  fancily-named drinks are irresistible amongst their rich chocolate amongst only the slightest hint of espresso (though of course of education you lot tin larn it without)… in addition to that chocolate drizzled whipped cream only takes the cake.

Every fourth dimension I sip on 1 it takes me dorsum to beingness a kid, sipping on a large drinking glass of highly-coveted mutual coldness chocolate milk (before I decided that I hated drinking milk, chocolate or not).

While I could’ve tried my manus at replicating the frappi-howeveryouspellit myself, I fancy myself equally a bakery rather than a barista, in addition to hence cupcakes it was.

To brand the oh-so-chocolaty cupcake component of this recipe, I slightly modified my recipe for my favorite, one-bowl chocolate cupcakes.

While the master copy chocolate cupcake recipe is pretty much perfect as-is, I made a few tweaks to brand them copycat-frappuccino-worthy.  Each cupcake is flecked amongst tiny bits of finely chopped existent night chocolate, in addition to the season is farther intensified amongst a few heaping spoonfuls of instant java for a subtle hint of espresso season inwards each melt-in-your-mouth bite.  These additions brand for  decadent, richly flavored cupcakes that are packed amongst flavor, but aren’t at all dense.

Be careful amongst the hot H2O equally it may splatter equally it is stirred, in addition to it volition live hot).

Recipe Notes
* Chop the chocolate into teeny tiny pieces--smaller than mini chocolate chips. I used a large knife in addition to "minced" the chocolate equally if I were mincing garlic. If you lot practice non brand the chocolate minor enough, it volition sink to the bottom of the cupcakes, you lot wish it to live dispersed throughout the cupcake (though, trust me, a few pieces on the bottom isn't anything to cry over). The estrus from the added java volition also assist shrink the pieces a bit.
**This recipe makes plenty batter for only over 24 cupcakes. You could either discard the excess batter (blasphemy!) or hold back for your pans to cool in addition to bake the extras. In my case, I used the leftover batter to brand a few mini cupcakes.
