Chocolate Cupcakes

Chocolate. Chocolate + cake. Chocolate + cake + frosting. Chocolate + cake + frosting + in your mouth. Yes, we are talking about chocolate cupcakes.

Cupcakes are personal. They are single serving.  You don’t have to share. You shouldn’t share.

I don’t think it’s possible to share these ones. With a decadent chocolate cake and a rich chocolate butter cream there’s nothing better, I promise.
