Be My Valentine: Chocolate Angel Food Cupcake Recipe

Valentine’s Day is for indulging.  Honestly, I feel like that’s been my mentality lately- probably too much indulging going on.  Life is about balance right?  I workout so I can have a cupcake for breakfast once in a while, right?  Speaking of indulging,  have you tried the Oreo Mega Stuffed cookies yet? OH. EM. GEE.  I couldn’t resist.  Now they need a Doritos with the MOST flavor on them and my life will be complete.

 Okay now I’m hungry and I haven’t even begun to tell you about these delicious Chocolate Angel Food Cupcakes.  These are by FAR my favorite cupcake I ever made in my entire life.  I’ve made lots of cupcakes- and these are hands down the fluffiest not too sweet, but sweet enough, cupcakes.  I thought I would share these today because they will make for the perfect little treat for Valentine’s Day!  

As much as I love the fluffy chocolate angel food cupcake, I love the decadent strawberry mascarpone whipped frosting.  It one of those frostings that is light and fluffy (necessary for an angel food cake), but so delicious I can literally just sit down with the bowl and eat it up!  You could honestly use this frosting in a similar way you would a mouse if you wanted an extra light dessert.  I never tried this, but my guess is this recipe would be delicious if you froze it – kind of like ice cream!
