Chocolate Cupcake Recipes

Chocolate cupcakes aren’t just adorable; they’re also easier to make than cakes. Everyone will also get to have their own little special cake. Also, if you’re feeding an icing-hoarder, (you know, those people who steal icing from the rest of the slices) it won’t be a problem anymore. Everyone will have a perfect cake-to-icing ratio.

9 Chocolate Tablea Cupcakes


Tablea isn’t like your store-bought baking chocolate. It’s less refined than chocolate bars, which gives a slightly fruity taste to your chocolate desserts. Then, there are the crushed cacao nuts that offer texture and an earthy flavor. The best part about using tablea with your baked goodies though is how it brings you back to that time as a kid when you’d sip frothy, thick, and hot tablea drinks.

The brown butter muscovado glaze adds the sweet notes to this decadent cupcake.


10 Caramel-filled Chocolate Cupcakes

Caramel and chocolate is a match made in heaven. The deep, sweet, and buttery flavor of caramel and its sticky, creamy texture work together to accentuate the bittersweet, earthy flavor of chocolate. You really cannot go wrong with this recipe.

This is an easy favorite: a cupcake with a chocolate base and filled with a decadent caramel center.
