Homemaker's Challenge #1

10/10/2010


I am participating in the HomeMaker's Challenge that Amy B is hosting. Our first challenge was to make a cupcake that reflects ourself. Well I decided to make Chocolate Apple cupcakes using a recipe that Krystal has on her website. I revamped it so that it was healthier for us and also so that my daughter could have it too. Tonight was her birthday party so I didn't get to make them all "fancified" but I did remember to take a picture.
  • Chocolate - who can resist chocolate!
and
  • Apples - they are good for you so......it means you can eat them without feeling guilty right?

Sounds delightful! I have never thought of mixing apples and chocolate before, Angie. I will definitely try them.

Glad you were able to make them - your changes sound easy enough too!

I wouldn't have pegged chocolate and apples together either but anything is good with chocolate, right?

They look yummy!

Oh, yummy! I made some apple cinnamon muffins for breakfast this morning, but I'm going to have to try this recipe sometime.
