Green & Black’s Chocolate Toffee Iced Cupcakes & Giveaway

Green & Black’s Chocolate Toffee Iced Cupcakes

Busy, busy, busy, that seems to be the theme of our summer.  We took a little time on Sunday and went up on the mountain to trout fish.  It was just what we needed.  The air is so cool and crisp and the spot we chose had wild mint growing everywhere, it smelled so good.  We all caught a trout or two and really enjoyed the day.  I did come away a little sunburned but all in all it was a very nice day.

Waiting for us when we got home were these sweet little cupcakes.  I used a box mix to save a little time, you could use your favorite from scratch recipe or even a chocolate mix.  You really can’t go wrong because the icing is out of this world amazing.

I made the icing with Green & Black’s Chocolate Toffee Bar chopped up inside.  The toffee bits add a great little crunch to the creamy icing and everyone loved them.  Green & Black’s Chocolate is so rich and creamy and delicious that I always struggle not to just hide it and eat it all myself.
