Chocolate Strawberry Cupcakes | いちごチョコのカップケーキ

Chocolate strawberries in cupcake form! These taste fresh and juicy, but rich and indulgent at the very same time. The jam adds a delicious surprise when biting into the cupcake, and the fresh strawberry and square of strawberry chocolate on top make the strawberry flavour come alive! These are super easy to make, but will definitely impress anybody you give them to!

Also, since the chocolate used in the pigs isn’t tempered, it needs to stay in the fridge to retain its glossy sheen. If you’re making these in advance, then simply add the pigs to the top of the cupcakes when you’re ready to serve them!

Ingredients (makes 6 cupcakes)
❤ 6 chocolate chip mocha cupcakes (recipe here)
❤ homemade strawberry jam (recipe here)
❤ white chocolate, melted
❤ dark chocolate, melted
❤ 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
❤ 4 cups confectioner’s sugar
❤ ½ tsp vanilla extract
❤ pink food colouring
❤ 6 squares of Lindt Excellence strawberry chocolate bar
❤ 6 small, round strawberries

1. Make a hole in the center of each cupcake with the back of a spoon, and then spoon in some fresh strawberry jam.
2. In a mold of your choice (I used a pig mold, which is linked in the description box of the video), fill in the eyes and noses of the pig with the melted dark chocolate and a toothpick. Place this in the freezer to set (about 5-10 minutes). Then fill in the rest of the molds with white chocolate. To make this even more decadent, you could fill these chocolates with strawberry jam as well! If you’d like to learn how to do that, I’ll link my Homemade Chocolates video in the description box as well as at the end of the video! Then just place these back in the freezer to set, for about 10 minutes.
3. In the meantime, make the buttercream. Cream the butter in a large mixing bowl until it’s light and fluffy. Add the vanilla extract, and mix together. Add the confectioner’s sugar 1 cup at a time, beating with each addition. Then add the pink food colouring and mix again. Place the buttercream in a piping bag fitted with a star-shaped tip. The tip I used in the video will give you sharper edges, but if you’d like the buttercream to look more ribbon-like like in the thumbnail, simply use a larger star-shaped piping tip.
4. Pipe the buttercream in a circular motion onto each of the cupcakes, starting from the outside and working towards the center.
5. Then top with one square of Lindt Excellence Strawberry chocolate, or any chocolate that you like, as well as one strawberry and a chocolate pig.
