I’ve been eating chocolate like it’s going out of style lately. When I got a box of Frosted Chocolate Cupcakes with Sprinkles from Katz Gluten Free, I was simultaneously excited and worried, since I knew without a doubt I was going to eat them all. The cupcakes come 6 to a pack and each one is topped with a thin shell of frosting and a smattering of colored sprinkles, making them pretty damn hard to resist. They are best kept frozen, which is great because they keep for a long time, but means you have to wait for them to defrost before you can enjoy one. I took a cupcake out of the freezer and impatiently waited for it to get to room temperature, checking on it constantly until it was sufficiently defrosted enough for me to eat.
When I finally took a bite, it was bliss. Dark chocolate is a thing of beauty, and the rich, dark chocolate from the frosting and cake, goes well with the sugary sweetness of the sprinkles. The cake is dense, but satisfying. The shell of frosting is super thin, and while tasty, I found myself wanting a slightly thicker layer of frosting. The cupcakes are lactose free, so for those of you with lactose allergies/intolerance, these are a great option for dessert. I can’t wait to get more of these. Maybe next time I’ll share with the rest of my family!
