8 Easy Toppings for Cupcakes Day #6 Chocolate Bar Cupcakes

This is a wonderful cupcake for individuals who want just a touch of chocolate.  It is very easy to make and it is fun to put the chocolate curls on top.





Cupcake #6 - Chocolate Bar Cupcakes

18 vanilla cupcakes (or chocolate for extra chocolate flavor)
1 tub of vanilla frosting (or chocolate for extra chocolate flavor)
1 small bar of chocolate (like Ghiradelli)
Nutella
chocolate chips (if desired)

In a small bowl combine vanilla frosting with about 3 tablespoons of Nutella.

Using a butter knife frost all of the cupcakes.

Melt a small amount of chocolate (or put a small amount of Nutella in the microwave for 10 seconds).  Drizzle the chocolate (or Nutella) over the tops of each cupcake.

Unwrap the chocolate bar and use a vegetable peeler on the chocolate to create tiny curls.  Let the curls fall on the tops of the cupcakes.

If desired, place a chocolate chip on top.

Alternate option:  Use chopped peanut butter cups on top instead of the chocolate bar.  Add a few spoonfuls of peanut butter to chocolate frosting before icing the cupcakes.
