Secret Recipe Club – Malt Chocolate Cupcakes

It’s time for another Secret Recipe Club post! I’ll tell you, I really love how being part of the club forces you to get to know someone’s blog, writing style, and photography style. It can be too easy to hit the StumbleUpon button, like what you see, but then move on in your everlasting quest to get to the end of the Internet.

Secret Recipe Club

This month I was assigned Savvy Eats – All About Smart Food & Fitness. Written by Julie, she is passionate about living savvy – being smart about what you eat, how you exercise, and about continuing to learn. That’s something I can definitely get down with – I’m a firm believer that you should never stop learning!

Sidebar: It’s a secret wish of mine to name my future little girl Savannah, and then call her Savvy. How adorable is that as a nickname?

Where were we? Oh yeah – leave it to me to find what is probably the most unhealthy recipe Julie’s dared to post – Chocolate Malt Cake. There was never a chance I’d start with anything else from her blog once I saw that though. You see, The Brit loves anything and everything malt. How could I resist the opportunity to make a chocolatey dessert like this when I knew it would make his day?

I turned Julie’s Chocolate Malt Cake into cupcakes. And because I’m lazy, I simplified her marshmallow filling a little bit. I have to tell you, this turned into one SUPER delicious cupcake. I added malted milk balls for garnish, and really love how they look like a jaunty little top hat of an accent.

I used Scharffen Berger baking chocolate in powdered and melting form, and it is just gorgeous. If you have the chance, I highly recommend getting some for any chocolate dessert you make.

I hope you’ll make these for your favorite person – for a birthday, like Julie did – or just because, like I did.
