Mocha CupCake

Valentine's day on June 12 ?

Yes,  in Brazil, the Dia dos Namorados (lit. "Lovers' Day", or "Boyfriends'/Girlfriends' Day")
is celebrated on June 12, probably because it is the day before the Festa Junina
(Saint Anthony's day), known there as the marriage saint, when traditionally
many single women perform popular rituals, called "simpatias", in order to find a good husband or boyfriend.
Couples exchange gifts, chocolates, cards and flower bouquets.

I 've got mine :D without rituals LOL
We've been together for almost three years.

Oye Papi , if you like it Mocha ...

Motivated by the Cupcake contest and inspired by Shakira's new song 'Rabiosa "..
I made this dessert for celebrating this special date, a coffee and chocolate cupcake.

Check out this Ible, and enjoy !

Mocha: Means here , type of skin color, like a dark color, tropical, Latin.
Mocha is a kind of coffee too.

You can use a grill like George Foreman or use these ⇒

So you'll need :

- double boiler, microwave or a Sandwich maker
- a brush
- a glass bowl (if you choose my way for melting)
- medium size cupcake liner


Step 3: Making the choco-cups..

- Melt the chocolate like you want.
- With a brush , put a chocolate layer
in the liner ,
Let  cool, and repeat .

- Once hard, with help a stick, pull the liner's edges  .

Ready, you have a Chocolate Cupcake liner like .
