{Zucchini and chocolate cupcakes}

Preparation time: 10 min

Cooking time: 20 min

Yield: 12



  1. Once the cupcakes ready and cold (can be prepared the day before), let’s start preparing the chocolate mini tablettes
  2. To prepare the chocolate tablettes, melt 50 g chocolate using the microwave, and add another 25 g chocolate chips. Stirr until totally disolved. Fill the mold with melted chocolate, and place in the fridge for about an hour. Upon removing from the fridge, the chocolate tablettes easily will come out of the molds.
  3. To prepare vanilla cream, in large bowl, cream shortening and margarine with electric mixer. Gradually add sugar, beating well on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl often. When all sugar has been mixed in, icing will appear dry. Add water gradually (1 tablespoon at a time) until desired consistency, and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.
  4. Fit a large round tip into a piping bag and fill with vanilla cream
  5. Pipe a small amount of vanilla cream over each cupcake, and place a chocolate mini tablette on top


  • If you do not have dairy allergies problems, prepare the vanilla cream with butter instead of margarine and Crisco: it will be tastier, and healthier
