Preparation of Valentine's Day Cupcakes:

We are going to prepare Valentine's Cupcakes for your partner as dessert for lunch or dinner on that special day. Surprise him with these delicious Cupcakes with the help of this recipe that we bring you below.

As it is always interesting in these cases, we recommend you turn on the oven so that it warms up while you prepare Valentine's Cupcakes, so you will be ready to bake them the moment we finish assembling them. The recommended temperature approx. They are 180ºC (356ºF), but each oven has a different configuration and it may vary a little from the time necessary for a good baking of these Cupcakes.

The first step to start making the recipe will be to place the slightly melted butter in a bowl or in the glass of the stick mixer that we are going to use. You already know that we always recommend the latter, since a kneader helps us to achieve a better final result and to facilitate our work, something interesting to keep in mind.

Next to the butter we are going to add the sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla essence. Once we have the ingredients in the bowl, we will beat all the ingredients well. We will beat intensely for a few minutes until the butter and sugar form a creamy mass.

When we get both ingredients well integrated, we are going to add the eggs to our dough, while continuing to stir it. It is best to add them one by one to make it easier for the eggs to mix. On the other hand, we are going to mix the flour with the cocoa and the baking powder in another container. Sift this mixture and add it to the egg mixture, and continue beating until you obtain a homogeneous and lump-free dough.

Having our dough ready, we are going to pour the dough into the Cupcake molds without completely filling them, trying to leave at least a third free so that they can rise well but without leaving the mold hole. Bake for about twenty minutes, always checking before removing that they are well made, for example, with a toothpick, and if necessary leave them a little longer in the oven.

When removing them we decorate with the chocolate frosting, and / or using some heart toppings or the like. If you put a little care they will be really beautiful and you will surely surprise your partner. If you do not know how to prepare the chocolate topping, we will explain quickly.

We must beat the butter with half the sifted icing sugar, until a creamy dough is obtained. Then add the vanilla, cocoa and milk and continue beating. Finally we add the rest of the icing sugar and wait for a creamy paste. And so we already get cream to decorate our Cupcakes.

Try to make a heart with the frosting to make it a true Valentine's Cupcake, or if you do not get it you can simply use heart toppings and the like, they will also be great and with a really attractive visual appearance.

If you want your cupcake to have a red color you can look at the Red Velvet cupcake recipe but adding hearts or Valentine's Day items.
