Chocolate Cupcakes w/ Swiss Meringue Buttercream and Brown Butter Glaze

Remember these doughnuts and how they blew my mind because they were just SO good and the brown butter glaze was insane?

I found another use for that tasty tasty glaze :)

I had some leftover in my fridge after the doughnuts had disappeared, just taunting me to dig in with a spoon. But I held strong! Instead I made some chocolate cupcakes, topped them with some vanilla bean swiss meringue buttercream, drizzled them with the remaining glaze, and BAM, proceeded to shoved them in my face.

So. Good.

I'm pretty sure you need to drizzle your next dessert with this glaze.  They just took the classic 'chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting' to the next level.  The fact that these were topped with a swiss meringue buttercream probably helped too; both my husband and I have an irrational weakness for the stuff.

I don't have that much longer that I can claim "It's not my fault! The baby has a sweet tooth", so I have to milk it while I can, right?

Speaking of which, we are 28 weeks now people! Only 12 weeks (ish) left until the big day. I cannot believe it! The little dude/dudette has been flipping and turning and practicing ninja moves like crazy over the last few weeks and I can't get enough.  I simply cannot describe what an amazing feeling it is.  

Here is my husband and I (and Chloe sneaking in at the corner) at my parent's house when I was 26 weeks, it's almost scary how much I have grown since then :)
