Normally I make a chocolate cupcake or chocolate cake and top it with raspberry frosting however I came up with this Chocolate Raspberry Buttercream Frosting recipe because I wanted even more amazingness when I am eating my favorite chocolate and raspberry. These chocolate raspberry cupcakes have a rich but light chocolate cupcake base with a bright and tangy raspberry frosting. The cupcakes come together in minutes with no mixer required and the raspberry frosting gets an additional punch of raspberry flavor from crushed freeze-dried raspberries. In a food processor or blender, puree the raspberries. Pour raspberries through a fine sieve into a bowl, pressing on solids, to eliminate the seeds.
