Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Orange Glaze

Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Orange Glaze

A box of yellow cake mix was sitting in my pantry for several months and I wanted to use it up. I also had a handful or so of chocolate chips in my pantry that wasn’t quite enough to make chocolate chip cookies or fondue. A perfect way to clean out my pantry!

I prepared the cake mix according to the box directions and then added a small handful of chocolate chips to each cup of cake batter, then baked.

The orange glaze was about 1/3 cup powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon of orange juice and the zest of one large orange. Oh, and a drop or two of vanilla extract makes it absolutely delicious. Sprinkle with almond slices if you want to get extra fancy. Enjoy!
