Cupcakes and brownies. Two classic desserts paired together in perfect harmony. What could be better? Perhaps, a creamy, dark chocolate frosting?

Perfect! That’s what we have for you today. 🙂

Ingredients List:

  • Flour + Salt+ Baking powder
  • Dark Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Sugar: Both white & brown
  • Eggs
  • Milk + Vanilla
  • Butter
  • Powdered sugar

Can I use regular unsweetened cocoa powder? Yes. But, I do recommend the dark for the deeper chocolate flavor. Regular cocoa powder will still give you a pretty amazing cupcake and frosting. See the recipe card for the brand I use.

A few things to note:

  • This recipe was also shared on my sister site, Table for Seven in 2017.
  • Be sure to let the cupcakes cool completely before frosting.
  • If you wish to skip the frosting (?!) No, seriously, you can. A light dusting of powdered sugar is a great option to top them off.

Enjoy-
