10 Great Recipes for Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cupcakes

I must have done something very naughty in my past because somehow I feel I am being punished here. There isn’t any chocolate and nor are there any strawberries or cupcakes within reach, yet here I am having to write about all three. Oh well, perhaps I can always call in at the local bakery on the way home and treat myself. It is hard to think of any more delectable a culinary combination. The sweetness and juiciness of strawberries is unmistakable. Chocolate, whether dark or light, is always a great foil to the sweetness of the strawberry and sugary content of the cupcake, while the softness and fluffiness of the cupcake works perfectly as a sponge for the juicy strawberry. However the story doesn’t stop there as there are a hundred and one ways you can combine these three elements to get your mouth watering. We’ve got a fabulous selection here to get you in the mood.
