[donotprint]Are you tired of all the rich, chocolaty desserts that have been flooding your taste buds for the last month and a half? If so, this recipe is for you! A tangy, citrusy gem, these cupcakes are the perfect solution to an overabundance of cranberries and oranges left over from the holiday season!
As often happens with my holiday grocery shopping, I purchased way too many ingredients for goodies that would never see the inside of my oven. I had great intentions to make and package my baked confections for friends and family, but there just weren’t enough hours in the day. So, I’m left with a pantry full of dried cranberries, chocolates, and various nuts that will soon find themselves in different creations.
In my search to find a recipe to use up some of these ingredients, I found this recipe for Orange Cupcakes at My Baking Addiction. I made a few changes to it and decided it needed a little tang on top, thus the cranberry orange drizzle. (It also used up more ingredients!) If you, too, are tired of all the rich desserts, give these cupcakes a try. They turned out really well and are bursting with citrus flavor. I’ll definitely be making them again![/donotprint]
