Tasty Tuesday - Delicious Mocha Cupcakes with Mocha Butter-Cream Frosting

I am not a huge lover of coffee, but I do enjoy mocha flavoured treats.  I had a major chocolate cupcake craving a few weeks ago, and decided to make some mocha cupcakes.

I used a chocolate cake mix, made to direction except for the liquid.  I made a shot of espresso, and added enough water to make 1/3 cup (the total liquid the mix called for)

Once the cupcakes were ready, I went ahead and made the frosting:

Mocha Butter-Cream Frosting
1 cup softened butter
1/3 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips (melted and cooled down)
1 tbsp of brewed espresso
1 tbsp milk
3 1/3 cup icing sugar

Using your stand mixer, whip the butter.  Add in the cooled chocolate and room temperature espresso. Once combined, add in milk and slowly add in icing sugar 1 cup at a time, mixing as you go.

Fill a decorators bag with the frosting and decorate as you like. I use the 1M tip, and made some with roses on top, and others swirled.
