Mardi Gras Hi-Hat Cupcakes

Chocolate Coating

There is something so appealing about a Hi-Hat cupcake. It brings me back to childhood summers when we would sit outside the ice cream shop and desperately try to lick up the ice cream and it will melt down our arms.

  • 11 ounces chocolate chips or finely chopped
  • 3 -4 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. Combine chocolate and oil in a medium heat-proof bowl set over a saucepan of barely simmering water.
