What makes fudgy?

June 5th, 2007 at 10:38 pm

I made chocolate cupcakes for my husband to take to cubscouts. I offered to make icing, he insisted it be fudgy....

I tried a new recipe that involved melted butter and cocoa powder, plus of course sugar, milk and vanilla. By not using a mixer I hoped to keep the air content down, and figured melted butter plus cocoa powder makes worked...

The end result was a very fudgy, very dark chocolate icing...and a very tired arm on my part!

So now the cupcakes are not fudgy enough for the wonderful topping!

So how do I make a cup cake fudgy-er....

    Try melting some milk chocolate morsels and mixing it (with a mixer) into the batter. Of course, too much fudgy can be bad. Sometimes it is better to put fudgy frosting on plain white or yellow cake to help cut the richness.

    Oh, that sounds very yummy.

    There's a cookie that I make that 1 cup of the choc chips is melted and mixed into the batter and the other cup is mixed in as is (out of the bag). Maybe you can do something like that?

    Not fudge, but still yummy with chocolate, is a little blob of cream cheese in the middle of the muffin prior to baking. Fill half the batter, then cream cheese, then the rest of the batter. Good enough even without frosting.
