Hot Chocolate Cupcake Recipe

Head over to Family Circle for the Recipe (If you are a member), if not:
If you can't zoom to see it, let me know! I'll email it to you :)

As you all already know, I love to bake. It's a habit really because I love sweets! I'm trying to find new recipes for the holidays this year. Of course, I'll go with the usual (Peanut Butter Fudge), but I'd like to incorporate some new ideas into "Add 5 Pounds Plan". Hahaha...kidding (I hope).

Anyhow, I was doing some cleaning up and out the other day and I've had no time for magazines over the last well, year, so I've accumulated a pile (Gramma recycles hers to me and I recycle those to the library). Yes, I'm one of "those" people that tear out what I want from the magazine and move on...

In the December 2010 issue of Family Circle, I stumbled across this little diddy. I added/changed a little. 

To the Cupcake:
I sifted all the dry ingredients together to make a smoother cupcake. It doesn't say to do that, but I did.

To the Topping:
I added three drops of Red Food Coloring because I'm a fan of the color pink and because I have to gaudy things up a bit (always). Plus, instead of Candy Canes, I used Peppermint and crunched them and sprinkled on top. I added a dash of Vanilla. Also, I used the milk instead of the water.
