After the Christmas break, my local Target had Christmas Lindt chocolate balls on clearance for only $1.40 per a bag, so I decided to buy LOTS of them, unfortunately the chocolate didn’t like the 41 degrees Celsius weather, so I had to put them in the fridge.
In hindsight, I think I may have bought too many bags of Lindt chocolate and I got sick of eating them after a while, so I decided that the easiest way to use them up was to bake with them, I decided to make vanilla cupcakes and put the Lindt chocolate balls into the centre of the cupcakes and I hoped that it would turn out okay.
Waiting for the cupcakes to be baked was torture, I was really worried that the Lindt chocolate balls would get burnt in the cupcakes or something else terrible like that, thankfully when the cupcakes were ready it appeared that they turned out okay.. phew!
I will definitely have to make these cupcakes again soon, it is so easy to make and they taste great!
For the vanilla cupcakes I used my favourite trusted recipe from Sally’s baking addiction: very vanilla cupcakes and I used milk and white Lindt chocolate balls for the centre.
