Chocolate PB Pretzel Cupcakes

 We hope everyone is having a very sweet Mother's Day!

We would first like to apologize for the lack of posts and social media activity in the past month.  Between cross-country traveling, moves, and school, we have both been very busy.  But we are back and ready to bake, bake, bake all summer!  

We have a great cupcake to share with you from our list of Specialty Cupcakes: the Chocolate PB Pretzel cupcake.  If you like salty and sweet, this cupcake is for you.  We start off with our favorite chocolate cake, fluffy and moist.  Then we have a generous swirl of our creamy peanut butter frosting, which is encased in crunchy and salty pretzel pieces. Why stop at one frosting when you can have two?  We finish this confection with a mini swirl of chocolate icing and a peanut butter chip.

It's creamy.  It's crunchy.  It's salty.  It's sweet.  It's chocolate.  It's peanut butter.  It's heaven.

Classic Brownies

Who doesn't love the simple, chocolatey pleasure of a fudgy brownie?  Ours are rich and moist, with a deep chocolate taste and luscious velvety texture.  There's not much else to say about these succulent goodies.  We bake them with love for each custom order and dust them with confectioner's sugar.  

We wrap them individually like our Butterscotch Bars, with our signature pink bow and one dozen Classic Brownies to a bag.  So you can share them with eleven friends or treat yourself twelve times... either way, indulge!


Special thanks to TZRollins Photography for the beautiful photos.

Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

We are excited to share our newest cupcake creation here at How Sweet It Is.  It's a simple, tried-and-true flavor combination, but it's our first time bringing it to you in cupcake form: the Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcake.

The one is pretty self-explanatory but ultra yummy.  Our favorite chocolate cake, moist and rich, is the bottom of this new confection.  We ice it with a green mint buttercream that also has a hint of earthy vanilla, to warm up the cool mint flavor.  Then we roll it in mini semisweet chocolate morsels.  It's like a scoop of your favorite flavor ice cream in cupcake form... Mint Chocolate Chip anyone??

Cookies 'n Cream Cupcakes

It's time for one of our most popular cupcakes, our Cookies 'n Cream!  This little guy has been one of our three most popular flavors for quite a while (along with Snickerdoodle and CocoNilla), so we thought we'd better put it up on the blog with the help of our talented photographer, TZRollins Photography.

This cupcake is actually pretty special to us, because it's what we first created our favorite chocolate cake for.  This is the cake that many of our chocolate cupcake recipes use.  It's fluffy and moist, and heavy on the chocolate.  It took us so many tries to get it right when we dreamt it up three years ago, which is funny to think about now that we make it over and over again.

To turn our chocolate cake into a Cookies 'n Cream confection, we ice it with a frosting that tastes like the inside of your favorite sandwich cookie.  Then we smother it in crushed cookies, and voila!  The simple yet scrumptious Cookies 'n Cream Cupcake is complete!

So that wraps up our Chocolate Week!  Have a great, chocolatey weekend and email us at with any chocolate orders.

Chocolate Week - Day Four

By Corinne:

For those who know me, they know that chocolate is one of my favorite foods.  In fact, it borders on addiction.  Giving me chocolate is a good way to make me your friend (a good hint for all the single guys out there).  Like we said earlier this week, all of the recipes that we sell are recipes we have developed ourselves, and I happen to be particularly proud of our chocolate cupcake recipe.  It comes out perfectly every time.  Every single time.  It is wonderful.  These are some of the best chocolate cupcake recipes that we have:

The first one is the S'mores Cupcake.  The reigning favorite of our photographer, Tyson Rollins, the S'mores Cupcake has a graham cracker crust, chocolate cake, and is topped with a vanilla buttercream frosting, crushed graham crackers, and three toasted marshmallows.  No need to freeze during the winter to get your favorite camping treat, we'll bake these up for you year-round!

 And for all you chocolate lovers, we have the wonder of wonders: the Triple Chocolate Cupcake.  A dark chocolate cake is smothered with a semisweet chocolate ganache, and carries a smooth chocolate buttercream frosting.  A must have for any chocolate lover.

So those are a couple of my favorites.  If you try them I'm sure you'll be hooked, too!  Happy Chocolate Week, everyone!
