Though the bakers at Chocolate Sanity Cupcakes split their menu into classic and novelty cupcakes, most of their flavors lean toward the unique. Every cupcake on their classic menu starts with a dark-chocolate cake that they spice up with potato chips, chili peppers, fresh pomegranate seeds, or maple buttercream and a strip of chocolate-dipped bacon. Candy makes an appearance in a red-licorice cupcake made with Red Vines filling, whereas popular drinks receive the cupcake treatment in delicacies flavored with cherry Coke or Corona. Novelty cupcakes span the flavor spectrum with sweet re-creations of everything from grape soda to chicken and waffles to Chicago-style caramel and cheese popcorn. The masterminds behind Chocolate Sanity Cupcakes offer their treats for delivery, though they also set up tastings amped up with live music and can craft delicious spreads for special events and office parties.
