Sometimes for social functions you're called upon to bring dessert. And yes, of course, there are any number of chocolatey, peanut buttery concoctions you could bring and they would be guaranteed crowd-pleasers. That's a given.
But sometimes...especially in early Spring (lol that's February if you're in Georgia) after I've just barely recovered from all the rich chocolatey nonsense that was had over the holidays...sometimes I'm in the mood for something different.
Something slightly fruity and tart but with a hint of pie. Oh man...pie.

Happy Valentine's Day!
Almost, at least. Whatever. And what could be better for Valentine's Day than red food? Omg red!
I have to admit that in the past I have not always been the biggest fan of red velvet anything really. Or Valentine's Day for that matter. I'm one of those people that will talk your ear off about how it's a made up holiday to sell greeting cards, how flowers die after a couple days, how it encourages consumerism, and it's too close to Christmas for me to be in the gift-buying mood again yet.
But...I do like an excuse to bake and eat sugary goods.
So, I guess it's sort of fitting that hidden in the center of these pretty red Valentine's cupcakes is a dark, black truffle center...my attitude about Valentine's day embodied in a food.
Or maybe I just wanted more chocolate. That could totally also be it.
