I have the most Amazing husband who is my biggest fan so I racked my brain of something special I could do for him for his birthday this year. I found this idea in the form of a picture on none other than Pinterest and decided to bring it to life in a gluten-free way since those are the only cake mixes I keep in my house. These cupcakes turned out fabulous!! The flavor was perfect, they were moist and delicious!! Everyone at his work Lontanda no one even knew they were gluten-free. I told him to tell them after they all told him how good they were.
Dr. Pepper Cupcakes
1 gluten free chocolate cake mix (I used Bob’s Red Mill)
1 c Dr. Pepper
1/2 c melted butter
*Mix all ingredients a pour into cupcake pan. Bake at 350 degree for 12-15 min. Once cooled, frost with Dr. Pepper frosting below and set in soda can that the top has been cut off. Please note the tops of the cans are VERY sharp!!
1/3 cup of Dr. Pepper
1/2 c butter
6 tbls of cocoa
1.5 lbs powdered sugar
* Bring everything but the powdered sugar to a boil. Pour the hot mixture over the powdered sugar and mix well. Add Dr Pepper to thin frosting as needed.
Chocolate Truffle Balls
2 bars of semi-sweet baking chocolate
1 (8oz.) package of cream cheese
* Beat cream cheese until smooth and soft in one bowl. In a small saucepan melt the chocolate slowly. Combine chocolate and cream cheese and mix well. Refrigerate until firm the remove and shape into balls.
