La Kitchenette Souris: Triple Chocolate Cupcakes

So yes, these have 3 types of chocolate items~ but technically, they could have 4 if you tucked some chocolate cookies into the center before baking them. *heehee*
Just an idea, for all you chocoholics like myself. 

For now, I will do my best to give you a fairly accurate recipe for these treats.
I say "fairly accurate" because the icing, well I just go by taste & looks.
Makes it hard to give you a solid recipe!
But I will try. 

Triple Chocolate Cupcakes

2 cups sugar
2/3 cups canola oil
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 2/3 cups flour

Beat above ingredients for 4 minutes.
Then add:

2/3 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups boiling water

Stir all together, just until smooth. 

Place muffin cups/liners in muffin tins. 
Fill approx 1/2 full.
(You will get around 2 to 2 1/2 dozen muffins)

Bake at 325F for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. 

Chocolate Icing

1 cup margarine 
1/2 cup milk
2 cups icing sugar

Cream together.
Then, by hand, stir in more icing sugar, slowly, until icing is very stiff & will hold its shape when piped.
I think I added around another cup by the time I was done. 

Then simply place into your piping bag & pipe!
I went with a basic swirl, because it's easy & always looks amazing, but you really could do any design you want~ browse Youtube & check out other designs. So many to chose from!

I sprinkled chocolate sprinkles (the 3rd chocolate item) on top & a pinch of icing sugar to add some color.
