Triple Chocolat Cupcakes with Greentea Macaron Topping

DSCN0652A

I love having mini chocolat cakes in a sizeable cup just like a medium cupcake as it is easy to eat, not too much and can be very addictive. When I peaked into my recipe books for chocolate cakes, there were so many varieties such as chocolat mud, chocolat brownie, white chocolat strawberry, chocolat chilli, chocolat with macadamia nuts, chocolat fudge, chocolat cherry, mint chocolat, chocolat chips with raisins, hazelnut chocolat, orange chocolat and many many more. Well this time I baked a triple chocolat cupcake with greentea macaron topping. . . . . . What did I do? . . . . Well, I baked a chocolat cake with bite pieces of dark chocolat in it and topped with chocolat butter cream plus a green macaron shell with greentea cream . . . . . an a whole roasted almond. Here is the chocolate cupcake recipe that I love to share with you . . .
