Chocolate goat cheese cupcakes from Buttercream Blondie are worthy of winning an Oscar. Simple chocolate cupcakes are topped with a light and airy goat cheese frosting with a red wine swirl. The richness of the chocolate pairs perfectly with the tart goat cheese and tannic red wine. This decadent dessert turns the everyday cupcake into a true showstopper.
