Looking for a new way to celebrate an occasion, whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, or even a recent wedding engagement? (Know of anyone who would fit that? wink wink) Well, move over cupcakes; those were so 2014 because Chocolate Pinata Mini Cakes are the new way to say “I love you, now let’s celebrate!”
Using Enjoy Life chocolate chips, the ONLY chocolate I love and trust for all my baked goods, this fun spin and twist on pinata cookies is very easy to make. Don’t believe me? Follow this video tutorial here and see what I mean. No need for fancy equipment, just large muffin liners and tons of allergen-friendly candy to stuff the insides with.* And chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate.
*For a healthier option, try stuffing the chocolate pinata mini cakes with fresh berries and use dark chocolate chips. Oh and oooooo, top it with coconut whipped cream and goodness, dessert is served!
The best of the process is at the very end when you can take a mini hammer (or any object really) to the chocolate hard shell, crack it open and find out what is inside. For the full video tutorial, take a looksie over here and enjoy your featured film (bring the popcorn):
