Morsels and Baking Ingredients

NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Dark Chocolate Morsels

10 oz.


Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12 cup muffin tin with liners.

Step 2

In a large bowl, sift flour, cocoa powder, granulated sugar, baking soda and salt together. Set aside.

Step 3

In a large measuring cup mix buttermilk, oil, and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Pour buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture, and mix until everything is well combined. Fold in the 1 cup Nestlé® Toll House® Dark Chocolate Morsels. Using an ice cream scoop (about ¼ cup), fill each muffin tin to ¾ full.

Step 4

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until a tester comes out clean. Remove from oven, and turn onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 5

Meanwhile prepare the filling. In a large bowl mix together 2 cups powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons milk, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract and peppermint extract. It will be slightly thinner than frosting.

Step 6

In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter and melted Nestle Toll House Dark Chocolate Morsels. Add 3 to 4 cups powdered sugar, 1/4 cup milk, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until light and fluffy. You can add more milk or sugar to get your desired consistency.

Step 7

Once the cupcakes have completely cooled, scoop 1 teaspoon of cake out of the center. Pour in some of the mint filing. Top with frosting.
