    Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 325 F. Prepare two muffin pans. Beat the sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl until smooth.
    2. Stir in the Salerno Mascarpone Cheese. Whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, and chocolate chips in a medium bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the mascarpone mixture. Stir until just blended.
    3. Divide the batter among the prepared muffin pans.
    4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a tester inserted into the centre of a cupcake comes out with no crumbs attached.
    5. Turn oven off and allow cupcakes to cool in the oven with the door opened for about 10 to 15 minutes. (Removing the cupcakes from the oven right away may result in the tops dropping).
    6. Remove from the oven and cool the cupcakes completely before decorating with icing.

    2. Pour over honey-chocolate mixture and allow to stand for 2 minutes.
    3. Stir until smooth; cool. Refrigerate until chilled, 1 to 2 hours.
    4. With an electric mixer, beat chocolate mixture until frosting is fluffy.
