White Wine Cupcakes
If you know me then you know that I love chocolate.
What girl doesn’t?
Because of my love for chocolate, I jumped at the chance to work with Ghirardelli Chocolates and Josh Cellars wine for their #asweetpairing campaign. It took me a while to decide what I wanted to make but ultimately decided on a Valentine’s bark using Ghirardelli chocolate. While shopping for the ingredients my daughter picked up a funfetti cake mix. An idea was instantly born and while I made the bark too, the white wine cupcakes were the bigger hit.
White Wine Cupcakes (with Ghirardelli chocolate and Josh Cellars wine):
They look delicious, right? Here is how you can make them. I promise it’s easy and because of the high oven temperatures, they are also kid-safe.
White Wine Cupcakes Ingredients: 1 Funfetti cake mix 1 Tub Funfetti icing Sprinkles Josh Cellars wine Ghirardelli Chocolate squares Directions: Make Funfetti mix as directed, replacing 1/2 cup of the water with 1/2 cup of Josh Cellars wine. Cool, Ice, and Sprinkle with pearls, then top with Ghirardelli chocolate square. Serve with chilled Josh Cellars wine.
This is truly #asweetpairing. The best thing is that you can purchase all of the ingredients at your local Wal-Mart making this an easy to prepare treat.
