I absolutely love cupcakes and have never met one I didn't like. I'm particularly fond of devil's food cupcakes, like this recipe, although I also adore strawberry cupcakes. A life pro tip: whenever you can have double the chocolate, always say yes and ask questions later. These chocolate cupcakes are made with Dutch-processed cocoa and are packed full of chocolate (I would add even more if I could!). I always make sure to use the best chocolate when I bake. We hope that this Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes recipe inspires you.
