Mini Chocolate Cupcakes Recipe

You know, I’m starting to judge myself for sharing too my chocolate recipes with you.

Ha-Ha! Gotcha! Like I would ever apologize for my shameless obsession with the best ingredient in the whole world!

I’ll admit, my relationship with chocolate can be considered borderline weird, but don’t we all have that one little thing we love so much and can’t imagine how our lives would be without that thing?

For me, that thing is Chocolate. My best friend. Mini Chocolate Cupcakes Recipe

If I sit down to make a list of all the recipes I’ve made that have one or the other form of Chocolate in them, we’d be here for the rest of our lives. Why don’t I just redirect you to my archives.

These Mini Cupcakes are so far my favorite because a) they are so laughably easy to make, and b) They a TINY. I love tiny portions of anything as they make me feel good about eating “less”.

You can choose to decorate them if you want but they taste amazing without the frosting as well. Since Halloween is just around the corner, I decided to “try” my hand at making spooky cupcakes. As you can see – I failed miserably in my attempt! But they disappeared in no time! 😉

  1. recipe turned to be perfect…loving my cupcakes…but taste wise it was sweetless like eventhough with the topings…

    1. The sweet was perfect for me. In the future, I suggest you taste the batter before you bake and adjust for sweetness! Hope that helps!

  2. Thanks for all the awesome recipes. I have tried a few and they have turned out delicious. Today I tried the cupcakes, they were good but a little dry from inside. I was wondering how to make it more moist. Suggestions?

    1. Thanks for the feedback 🙂
      As they are “mini” versions, try baking them for lesser time. Although recipe says 20 minutes, keep an eye out from 15th minute onwards as every oven tends to vary. 🙂

  3. Made these on Sunday. Perfect treats for the weekend. I live your step by step recipes!

  4. I made these and followed recipe exactly but they came out more like little breads and not very sweet. What could have gone wrong? My batter was extremely dry.

    1. You probably baked it too long. Mini cakes take comparatively less time and you have to monitor them as every oven tends to vary.
      If your batter is too dry, you can always thin it out with milk… and as for the sweetness, you have to adjust to suit your taste, which is what I mention in the recipe too! 🙂 I went a little less on sweet as I was gonna frost them too.

      1. Hey I made them and they were delicious!

  5. They look tempting! But then I always had a weakness for chocolate! Join me to celebrate 7 years of Annarasa we Festive eats and a giveaway at my blog. Your recipe fits right in. http://www.annarasaessenceoffood.com
