Lindt Truffle Chocolate Cupcake Recipe

Lindt Truffle Chocolate Cupcake Recipe

I love Lindt truffles. My favorite is the white chocolate truffle. These cupcakes are baked with the truffles inside, making them extra special. You can choose your favorite Lindt truffle. Besides white chocolate some other flavors are dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and mint chocolate. I put the truffle right in the batter before baking. The truffles melt; however, it adds a richness of extra chocolate. The other option is to push the truffle in the cupcakes 5 minutes after the start of baking. A third method is to push the truffle in immediately after baking. It will melt inside. All three methods will result in equally delicious cupcakes.
