These cupcakes tasted just like Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino…which I am addicted to..so needless to say I was very happy with the results!
Additional Info: I used a regular chocolate cake recipe for the cupcakes and dissolved two packs of the coffee granules in water and added it to the cake batter. I also sprinkled the tops
with a few granules which after about 10 minutes melted from the moisture of the icing. There is a picture of these cupcakes in my pictures.
Mocha Frappuccino Frosting
2 – single serving Nescafe instant coffee granule packs
(I believe this is a new product, I got them at Walmart
and it contains 7 single serve packs, perfect size for
mixing into frosting and cake)
2 – cups of buttercream, no flavoring added, also no milk or water
added so it is extra dry
1/3 – cup of store-bought milk chocolate frosting
4 – tablespoons luke-warm water
Mix the two packs of Nescafe with luke-warm water and let sit for a minute or two. While that is sitting mix together the buttercream
and chocolate frosting then add in the coffee (make sure it is completely dissolved). I generously frosted 8 cupcakes with this and still had a little bit left over.
