Maple Spice Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

November 1, 2015 / 34 Comments

Hello everybody! Welcome to my new domain! I decided to leave and look for a more accessible, memorable name.  After some thought and lots of great feedback from my school friends I decided on TASTEFOLIO.

I hope that you will like it!

These Spicy Chocolate Chip cupcakes are perfect for the fall weather! When baking them, the smell in the kitchen is divine. The gentle aroma of spices marries perfectly with the sweetness of a maple syrup and small chocolate chips inside are a welcome textural surprise. Cupcakes are moist, soft and very delicious. Perfect for any type of party!
