All I want for Christmas is Chocolate! 2 recipes…

This is just to get your attention 😀

Christmas tree cupcakes

Ingredients Cupcakes:

  1. 4 eggs
  2. 3 cups oil
  3. 6 cups flour
  4. 5 cups sugar
  5. 1 cup cocoa
  6. 3 cups water
  7. 1 vanilla sugar
  8. 1 baking powder

Stuffng: nutella


  1. sweet cream or whipped cream
  2. green and brown powder or gel
  3. colorful decorative sprinkles

Preparation Cupcakes:

  1. Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites and mix the egg whites into a firm snow.
  2. Add sugar to the egg yolks and mix them to get a frothy mixture. Lightly stir the snow into the mixture of egg yolks and sugar. Add oil, water and vanilla sugar and mix all ingredients together. Finally, add cocoa, flour and baking powder and stir with a spoon. Whenever you add cocoa you can add another one to two tablespoons of water.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180 ° C. Grease the muffin tin or insert the muffin baskets and if you use a silicone mold, you do not need to grease it. Fill the mold with the muffin mixture and place a teaspoon of nutella on top. If you wish, you can also replace nutella with a chocolate cube.
  4. Place the mold in the oven and bake the cookies for about 10 to 15 minutes (check with a toothpick – the muffins are done when the toothpick comes out clean from the biscuit).
  5. Take the finished muffins out of the oven and let them cool for a few minutes, then take them out of the mold. Cool them completely before decorating.


  1. You will need sweet cream or whipped cream to decorate, depending on which you prefer.
  2. Prepare the whipped cream according to the instructions from the bag (with milk), and if you use sweet cream, just mix it, being careful not to over mix it because it will not be able to form nicely.
  3. Paint the sweet cream or whipped cream green with edible powder or gel. In addition to green, I added a little brown to get a nicer green shade.
  4. Then fill a syringe for decorating or a pastry bag, put a star-shaped attachment (or one for making roses) and circularly apply the mixture to the muffin to form Christmas trees – and it’s more than simple. Play and create different shapes, no two trees are identical, so create without limits and enjoy what is happening in front of you… sweet forest of Christmas trees…
  5. Finally, decorate the Christmas trees with sprinkle. If you wish, to make your cookies look like small gifts, add a bow to the bottom of the cupcakes to complete the story and you can proudly give them away.

More ideas for Christmas trees…

If you have a decorative sprinkler in the shape of stars, you can put one star on top of your Christmas trees, just like we do with real Christmas trees in our homes. You can also make Christmas trees with an ice cream cone. Cut off the top of the cone, large depending on how tall the Christmas tree you want, place and lightly press the cone into the cooled muffin and then “coat” it with green sweet cream. And here’s the fight. Then you decorate it again however you want and with whatever you want.
