There’s no denying that I love trying new chocolates – whether it’s Whittaker’s peanut butter or raspberry and white chocolate, or Cadbury’s Marvellous Creations I’m all over it in a heartbeat. So when I heard Whittaker’s was launching L&P chocolate I couldn’t wait to lay my hands on a block.
Luckily, I wasn’t disappointed in the slightest and over the past week have been busy scheming how I could use it in some baking. To be honest, it wasn’t hard to come up with something – cupcakes were the obvious choice! A bit of pondering and planning later, I was all set to make these L&P cupcakes a reality.
So what are they exactly? A fluffy, moist L&P cupcake topped with rich L&P chocolate buttercream complete with popping pieces. Yip, there’s L&P baked into the cupcake to give them an extra hit of that classic L&P taste – and ensure the icing doesn’t totally steal the show!
