Big thanks to Sprinkle Pop for the awesome Milky Way Sprinkles. I received product to create this recipe. These Easy Dark Chocolate Galaxy Cupcakes simply wouldn’t have looked this good without them! #Choctoberfest
It’s #Choctoberfest y’all! After posting my Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes earlier this week, I wanted something that wasn’t a cupcake.
I failed. But I’m not sorry. It’s National Chocolate Cupcake Day today, October 18th. So what does that mean? A cupcake was a must!
These Dark Chocolate Galaxy Cupcakes are super simple, colorful, beautiful and taste OH so good!
You don’t have to load your cupcake batter or frosting recipe with food coloring just to make Galaxy Cupcakes.
These Easy Dark Chocolate Galaxy Cupcakes are perfect, and look fantastic without all the dye.
Pick up a jar of Milky Way Sprinkles from Sprinkle Pop, and there is no way you can go wrong.
They look great, taste great and are a super easy homemade cupcake treat!
These Easy Dark Chocolate Galaxy Cupcakes started out as a request by my kiddo.
She fell in love with the Milky Way sprinkles from Sprinkle Pop and wanted me to make cupcakes with them. Eventually she requested actual Galaxy cupcakes.
While I don’t mind using food coloring/dye to create something, there just didn’t seem to be a reason to do so.
I took our favorite dark chocolate cupcake recipe and decided to see if we could mimic a Galaxy cupcake without all the dye.
We even took it a step further and made these Galaxy Cupcakes with a bit of a surprise inside.
Our Easy Dark Chocolate Galaxy Cupcakes are filled with beautiful Milk Way sprinkles from Sprinkle Pop. It’s a sprinkle party in every bite!
And it’s pretty easy to get those sprinkles in the center too, which means you can totally do it!
How do you get sprinkles inside a pinata cupcake?
To get the sprinkles inside the cupcakes, it’s so simple. Choose your favorite cupcake recipe and bake.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Using a knife or small cookie cutter, cut out a hole on top.
We actually used the decorator tip for our frosting bag. The bottom was the perfect sized circle.
Scoop out a bit of the cake, pour in the sprinkles and replace the top. Finish by frosting the cupcakes and add more beautiful sprinkles to the top.
What you get, is these Easy Dark Chocolate Galaxy Cupcakes.
Dark rich chocolate flavor, decorated with fun and pretty sprinkles and filled inside with a pinata of sprinkles.
In fact, maybe these cupcakes should be called pinata cupcakes. At least you only have to bite them and not beat them with a stick.
One bite of these moist, rich, chocolate gems and you’ll be sold. A Dark Chocolate Galaxy Cupcake is divine!
