I like scary movies that make me jump out of my seat, sit nervously peeking through my fingers and make me belt out a scream that can shatter glass. Insidious: Chapter 3 was just that movie. Plenty of scary ghosts popping out unexpectedly, and tense moments with characters nosing around in places no normal person would. This movie was suspenseful, creepy and a lot of fun.

Insidious: Chapter 3 food pairing recipes include:

  • Ghost Pepper Chili Chicken Wings. These wings are tangy with a nice balance of heat.
  • Beef Jerky for the non-vegetarians out there.
  • Devil’s Food Cupcakes with Nutella Buttercream
  • Liquefied Ghost Cocktails to soothe your throat after all the screaming.

The newest chapter in the terrifying horror series is written and directed by franchise co-creator Leigh Whannell. This chilling prequel, set before the haunting of the Lambert family, reveals how gifted psychic Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl (Stefanie Scott) who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.” by Derek Anderson – DailyDead.com

Devil’s Food Cupcakes with Nutella Buttercream

Devil’s Food Cupcakes with Nutella Buttercream

  • 101 g (1/2 cup plus 3 1/2 tablespoons) all-purpose flour
  • 31 g (1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons) Dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 2.5 g (1/2 teaspoon) baking soda
  • 0.5 g (1/8 teaspoon) baking powder
  • 1 g (3/8 teaspoon) kosher salt
  • 56 g (3 1/2 tablespoons) egg, at room temperature
  • 126 g (1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons) sugar
  • 2 g (3/8 teaspoon) vanilla extract
  • 86 g (1/2 cup plus 2 1/2 tablespoons) mayonnaise, at room temperature
  • 105 g (1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons) water, at room temperature

 Nutella Buttercream

  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk (I used 1%)
  • 1 1/4 cups confectioners’ sugar

Preheat oven to 325 F. Line a cupcake pan with paper liners.

Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and baking powder into a medium bowl. Add the salt and whisk to incorporate. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the eggs, sugar, and vanilla on medium-low speed for 1 minute, then increase the speed to medium and continue beating for 5 minutes, or until the batter is pale yellow in color and thick. Stop the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl, then beat for another 5 minutes on medium-high. The batter should be very thick, and when the whisk is lifted, the batter should ribbon from it and slowly dissolve into the batter in the bowl. Beat in the mayonnaise until combined. Remove the bowl from the mixer, and using a rubber spatula, alternately fold in the dry ingredients and water in two additions each (so dry, water, dry, water).

Divide the batter evenly among the liners, filling each about 2/3 full. Bake for about 18 minutes, or until the cupcakes spring back when lightly pressed and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove the pan to a wire rack and let the cupcakes cool for a few minutes, then remove them to the rack to cool completely.

To make the buttercream: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and Nutella on medium speed until well combined. Mix in the vanilla and milk. Add the confectioners’ sugar and beat on low speed until incorporated then increase the mixer to medium speed and beat until the frosting is smooth and fluffy. Transfer the frosting to a large pastry bag fitted with a decorative tip. Pipe frosting into a swirl on each cupcake.

Makes about 10 cupcakes
