Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes

When you serve these Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes everyone will think you have been slaving all day in the kitchen.

These moist cupcakes can be made up to 3 days ahead of when needed. They keep really well.

I know, I know how much we like easy recipes but this is definitely a chocolate cupcake recipe that is worth following precisely. The gorgeous red of the raspberries makes this another ideal cupcake to serve at Christmas time.

Unlike a muffin, where the raspberries would be folded into the mixture, in this recipe the raspberries are only placed (or stacked) on top and then covered in a decadent but delicious chocolate ganache.
