Orange Milk Chocolate Cupcakes
Who would have ever thought that the flavors of orange and chocolate would be such a delight to the taste buds. The first time I ever had the pleasure of eating them together was when I bought a chocolate orange ball. It was in the shape of an orange , but made of chocolate. You could even break it into segments like an orange. One taste and I was hooked.
Orange Milk Chocolate Cupcakes …milk chocolate on the inside and on top just because I love milk chocolate. The addition of orange zest and juice gives you a subtle flavor of orange that marries so well with the creaminess of milk chocolate.
As you start mixing the recipe together you’re going to notice that this is a very thick batter, it almost has the appearance of a cookie dough instead of a cupcake batter. Fill your cupcake liners 3/4 full, sprinkle with chips and bake.
These cupcakes are perfect all by themselves, but if you want to kick them up a notch, serve them warm with ice cream. Orange Milk Chocolate Cupcakes, Enjoy!

Wow — Bunny! I am really going to have to try these Orange Milk Chocolate cupcakes, because they sound positively delicious. I, too, have had those Orange Chocolate Balls that they only seem to sell in the grocery stores right around Christmas, and I just love them. In fact, I find them to be downright addictive, so maybe it’s a good thing that I’m not able to get my hands on them year round — LOL! Also, this recipe is bound to be very moist, too, since I notice that there’s a 1/2 cup of mayonnaise in there, too. Thanks so much for passing it along to us, Bunny!
