Two Chocolate Cupcakes- Just two chocolaty cupcakes topped with a creamy frosting. These are great if you are practicing portion control or simply don’t want to make a whole batch of cupcakes. Delicious and simple!
- Baking soda
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
- Powdered sugar
I like to use the dark chocolate variety for unsweetened cocoa powder. It definitely gives it a deeper cocoa flavor and color. You can find a link to the brand I use in the recipe card. Of course, use your preferred variety/brand for your cupcakes.
Any neutral flavored (vegetable/canola/sunflower) will work. If desired, you can replace it with melted butter. Just be sure to let the melted butter cool for about 5 minutes before adding it to the batter.
Don’t over mix your batter. This may give you dense cupcakes. Simply mix until no dry spots are left in the batter.
Don’t feel like making your frosting homemade? Use a can of the pre-made stuff! Also, if chocolate is not your preferred flavor, check out the frosting section of the index for some different flavor ideas. Note: these are also delicious simply plain 😉
Keep your cupcakes in a covered container in the refrigerator. They are best eaten in a 1-2 days.
