Law School Admissions Cupcakes (The better version of LSAC)

One of my friends from college lives in the town I go to law school in. He works for a local law firm here and had been planning to go to law school. Yesterday, he got into my law school and will be starting in the fall. As celebration, I naturally decided to bake cupcakes!

I immediately went to my default chocolate cupcake recipe from Our Best Bites (made with Ghiradelli cocoa powder) and baked them up. But what about frosting? It was cold, a bit icy, and my powdered sugar was in my car. (Don't ask...pretty much everything is in my car). So...I decided to fashion some frosting that was reminiscent of a chocolate pecan pie I made during the summer of 2007 AKA the summer I learned to bake.

Frosting/Glaze - frosts about 18 cupcakes, maybe a few more

1 Cup Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup Corn Syrup
1/4 Cup Unsalted Butter
1/2 Cup Pecans

1. Melt the chocolate chips, corn syrup, and butter together in the microwave, stirring often to avoid burning.
2. Stir in pecans.
3. Spoon over cupcakes.

I was sort of dubious about potential taste, but actually, it's really awesome. It has a really marshmallow-y quality about it.

I was so glad to share these cupcakes with my friend who will soon know the wonders of intentional torts himself.
