Chocolate Cupcakes For this recipe, I used American Heritage chocolate because it has a very unique and tasty flavor. They use a blend of spices available during colonial times to give it a mildly spicy and slightly sweet taste. American Heritage Chocolate is an authentic historic line of chocolate developed from recipes from the 1750’s. They use all natural ingredients and exotic spices including cinnamon, nutmeg, chili pepper, orange, anise and vanilla, to make this artisan chocolate.

American Heritage Chocolate 1You can use this chocolate for candy making, as a hot drink, or in a variety of recipes replacing semi-sweet chocolate one-to-one. For those of you with allergies, you’ll be glad to hear they don’t use wheat, dairy, peanuts or tree nuts. Visit American Heritage Chocolate’s website for more recipe ideas or to purchase their chocolates. They are sold through their website and exclusively at living history sites, museums, and specialty gift shops that support education.
