Brunch Desserts

When you go to brunch, you get lunch and breakfast recipes. Just as important is the brunch desserts! Cupcakes are a wonderful dessert for brunch to serve up!


Hershey Kisses

I want to make recipes with Hershey kisses. However, when you think of Hershey recipes, you think Hershey kisses cookies. I wanted to do something different and still make Hershey kisses the main star of the recipe.




Unique Cupcake Recipes

I love making unique cupcake recipes. I have several on Seduction in the Kitchen like Limoncello Cupcakes (Limoncello Alcohol Infused}. What makes these kiss cupcakes a unique cupcake recipe? Honestly, it is the chocolate on top of chocolate!




Easy Chocolate Cupcake Recipe

To make this easy chocolate cupcake recipe, cake mix with a few additions is the answer. So would these kiss cupcakes really be death by chocolate cupcakes? Yes, but let’s be honest, the term death by chocolate is overdone. I like Kiss Of Chocolate Cupcakes as a title better because it is a small chocolate kiss that tops this chocolate cupcake recipe.




Chocolate Cupcake Frosting

Even though this chocolate cupcake recipe is easy, the real star is the chocolate cupcake frosting! Imperial Sugar makes a powdered sugar that just makes this chocolate cupcake frosting pop. Plus this chocolate cupcake frosting is super easy to make!
