Chocolate Strawberry Cream cupcakes

Twice a month I have a group of 11 year old girls over and we craft, sing songs, learn etc.  I love doing this.  They are such fun girls to get to know.

They always expect treats.  Always.  Which is fine with me.  So I may be showing more treat recipes here on the blog.  I made these Chocolate Strawberry Cream cupcakes to celebrate a birthday we had in the group.

I am so making these chocolate strawberry cream cupcakes for my daughter's birthday.

The girls all LOVED them!  They went back for seconds.  I loved them also.  The chocolate and strawberry frosting went so well together.  Plus they look pretty lol.

These chocolate Strawberry cream cupackes look so amazing!

Strawberry Cream frosting

  • 2 cups heavy cream


  1. Combine the cream cheese, sugar and strawberry extract.
  2. Mix until smooth.
  3. While mixing slowly add cream.
  4. Continue whipping until cream can hold a stiff peak.

These look so good.  My daughter would love these Chocolate Strawberry cupcakes!

These are a fun treat to make and they taste soo good.  The extract was enough to get this light pink color but if you want, you can always add a few drops of food coloring.  Let me know if you make these.  I’d love to hear how they turn out.

  5. These cupcakes look so delicious and yet almost too pretty to eat! I think I could get over that quickly—chocolate is quite a temptation! :) New facebook follower here! Would love to have you share at my link party!
