TWD- Chocolate Chocolate Cupcakes

I know you came here looking for something called Rugelach, but I missed last week's TWD because of this, this and this and I really wanted to make them. And also, I didn't so much want to make anything with raisins/currants and nuts. Although the cream cheese dough sounds pretty good.
I was actually planning on making these cupcakes for a Halloween party on Friday night, but I ran out of time/energy so I decided to make them for our missionary dinner guests tonight. These yummy diddies were chose by Clara (whose blog is so great, I might add). I love the pic in the book- so simple with silver dragees. I just topped mine with Heath bits. I was a little disppointed that my glaze wasn't as shiny as the books, but they were still delicious!Here's the recipe. And if you want to see some rugelach, go here!

  3. I'm a fellow TWD baker, and I was thinking that it would be nice if we all could chip in and get Laurie some small token/gift for all the work she does. Would you be willing to contribute? If I can get enough people, it would only be about $1 per person. No pressure :-) Let me know! bethberg12@yahoo.com

  5. Those look delicious with the toffee bits! Do try the rugelach when things slow down (and add the toffee... it softens perfectly!)

  6. I'm glad you enjoyed the cupcakes. I do recommend that you try the rugelach at some point--the great thing is that you can put whatever you want in them. =)

  7. Love the toffee bits on top! Do try the rugelach, the cream cheese dough is really flaky and nice.
