Chocolate covered Cannoli Cupcakes


Cupcakes are the perfect food.  They have equal proportions of cake to icing (if made correctly) and come in a neat little package.  The best thing about cupcakes, is that they come in so many different varieties. Being that I am on a cannoli kick (see previous post “Cannoli Cups”), I decided to make a cannoli cupcake. But that has been done before, so how can I make it better? Well, you dip it in chocolate, of course.

INGREDIENTS

Cupcakes:
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
Cannoli Cream Frosting:
  • 16 ounces ricotta, drained
  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese at room temperature
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips.

INSTRUCTIONS

For the cupcakes:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line 2 muffin tins with liners.
  3. In a small bowl, sift the flour, baking powder and salt.
