Valentine Party Cupcakes

After hubby’s surprise earlier, I still had a lot of work to do today – it was cupcake time. I couldn’t post this earlier because the cupcakes were for a potluck party (post next in line) and some of the guests and the hosts read the blog and I wanted the treats to be a surprise.

It’s pretty late here, so I may just do this post a series of pictures, since I still have 2 others I need to do.


Unsweet chocolate squares.


Chopping the chocolate.


Melting the chocolate.


Melted chocolate. This is the base for the cupcakes and brownie square.


Homemade frosting.


Cutting out cupcake toppers.


Tiny brownie hearts.


Adorable cupcakes. I made these cupcakes using a recipe from Martha Stewart Living February. The sprinkles were my own little addition. Both hubby and I adore sprinkles!


A closer look at the sprinkly, brownie heart goodness. Yum! The cupcakes actually came out a little dry, but the frosting was divine and the brownie hearts were pretty moist.


The recipe made a ton of cupcakes – 24 to be exact. There were plenty of leftovers from the party, so I’m sure to have some happy co-workers on Monday.

Reader Question: Did you make anything special Valentine’s treats this weekend?
