Chocolate Cinnamon Birthday Cupcakes!

Thank you for stopping by little island studios, please subscribe by email to follow along in family fun!

In my recent birthday post - It's My Birthday & I'll Cook If I Want To  -  I mentioned that I would share my birthday Chocolate Cinnamon Cupcakes with you!  
Enjoy! 
Chocolate Cinnamon Cupcakes with Sprinkles on Top!

Quality ingredients make all the difference!  Organic eggs, unbleached unbrominated flour, Saigon Cinnamon, organic Greek yogurt,  Organic Whole Milk with Cream on Top (oh my this is great milk) and organic chocolate!

Icing ingredients - Williams Sonoma sprinkles with natural coloring, Sea Salt Caramel, Organic Chocolate, Organic Powdered Sugar (a must)

Delicious cupcakes waiting for icing! 


Chocolate Cinnamon Cupcakes!


Ingredients:

1 1/2 Unbleached Unbrominated Flour (King Arthur is my fav)
3 heaping tablespoons of cocoa
2 teas baking powder (no aluminum)
3 teas Siagon Cinnamon

5 oz of Stonyfield Greek Yogurt - Plain
1 large organic brown egg
5 oz brown sugar

6 oz Whole Organic Milk with Cream on Top



Icing Ingredients:

8 oz of Cream Cheese or Neufchatel Cheese (use cream cheese for less of a twang)
1 1/2 cups Organic Powdered Sugar
1 tbs of Salted Caramel Syrup
3 oz of melted dark chocolate
1 tbs of slightly warm - strong French coffee

All natural coloring sprinkles -  I use Williams-Sonoma 
My notes:

Almost all ingredients were purchased at Williams-Sonoma and Whole Foods, the powdered sugar I always buy at Trader Joe's for about half the price of everyone else - yay!

This is not a sponsored post.  I am a Stonyfield Ambassador, so of course I am partial to their delicious  yogurt.  However, these are my birthday yummies I wanted to share with you.  I paid for all ingredients myself :)

Did you actually have a recipe for this before you started or did you make it up along the way? These are some of my very favorite flavors but I would never have been clever enough to put it all together like this. Sounds yummy! Hope your birthday was awesome :-)
