Milk Chocolate Chunk Cupcakes

July 8, 2012

Over the past couple of days I have been adding different ingredients to the basic Vanilla Cupcake recipe.

This cupcake has chocolate chunks added and then is decorated with some more chunks of milk chocolate.  Inside the cupcakes I used milk cooking chocolate because it bakes better and doesn’t melt into the cake.  The decoration is cut up pieces of Cadbury’s Dairy Milk.
