Chocolate and nuts are one of those amazing combinations when it comes to baking. I love using pistachios in particular, as they have such a gorgeous green colour that lifts any dessert and most importantly they taste delicious too. This recipe combines the two flavours in a lovely little cupcake.
I have topped these cupcakes with a gorgeous pistachio cream cheese frosting, which works really well against the rich chocolate cupcake. It’s not too heavy and has a lovely tangy yet sweet taste.
