They are moist, minty and utterly wonderful. So wonderful that I'm bringing them to work tomorrow, Mr. Schwartz and myself do not need these around to tempt us. I'm sure your friends and family would love to have these be on your St. Patrick's Day celebration menu.
Musical Selection: If I Ever Leave This World by: Flogging Molly. We need a little St. Patty's Day tunes to go with the recipe, don't you think?
Baked. Not perfect but that's why we make frosting. Well, one of the reasons.
Shamrock Shake Cupcakes
For the Cupcakes:
Place white baking chocolate in a large mixing bowl; set aside. In a small saucepan heat whipping cream just until simmering. Pour over white baking chocolate stir. If it does not completely melt, you can put this mixture into the microwave on high for 10 seconds at a time or until the chocolate is melted. Stir until smooth; let stand for 15 minutes. Gradually beat butter into melted white chocolate mixture with an electric mixer on medium to high speed, beating until combined. Gradually beat in powdered sugar until frosting reaches piping or spreading consistency. If you desire, add green food coloring to the frosting until it reaches your desired shade. Makes 3-1/2 cups.
Frost cupcakes as you wish! :)
