I’m fond of romantic gestures, and anything made for me by my husband’s own two hands is always a winner. I mean I loved the tablet I received one year. Upgrading my ‘point and shoot’ camera to a gently used DSLR for our anniversary to help my business? Totally thoughtful. BUT, the year he put the kids to bed, and then set the table with flowers he’d cut himself and cooked a special dinner for me that was a copycat of one of my favorite restaurant meals? Totally had me melting.
He knows me so well. Luckily, I happen to know a thing or two about him too. Like the fact that one of the quickest ways to his heart is through his sweet tooth. A velvety cupcake topped with sweet indulgent butter cream is always a winning combination. Stir in nibs of dark chocolate into the batter and infuse the frosting with a rich red wine? Now you’ve got the makings of a batch of these Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Red Wine Buttercream.
The flavors meld beautifully into an edible love note that’s as good to give as it is to get. So for all our chocolate lovin’, red wine sippin’ readers– this is the dessert you’ve been waiting for. Make it to share with the one you love, or make a batch to treat yourself– because you’re awesome too.
