Spice things up with these wickedly rich cupcakes made from the darkest, bitterest chocolate and spiked with fiery red chilli peppers. For decoration you could even use real chillies but remember, the smaller the chilli the hotter it will be. This recipe is from my book 'Special cupcakes'. See footnote for more details.
These were absolutely delicious, everyone loved them and i will most ceratainly be doing them again - 26 Sep 2012
I will start by saying that I always receive compliments on how moist my cakes are but these are the driest, crumbliest cakes I have ever made. You don't notice the chilli taste in them and the dark chocolate icing overpowers the whole cake. Also I like to pile my icing high and found that I only had enough for about 8 cakes, yet my batter made 16 cupcakes so if you do try this recipe you might want to double the icing quantities. - 16 Dec 2012
