The best chocolate cupcakes ever!

Share

Today I am sharing with you the BEST chocolate cupcakes ever! They are super soft, rich and topped with a lush buttercream frosting! You won’t believe how easy these chocolate cupcakes are to make.

My husband has claimed (on more than one occasion) that these are the BEST chocolate cupcakes he’s ever had. My friend brought them over a couple months ago and we literally both gasped! They were so soft and full of chocolate goodness, we couldn’t just stop at one! Since that day we’ve made this recipe about 3 times and plan to make it many more! And to tell you the truth I’m usually not a chocolate cake fan. I mean, I LOVE chocolate, but for some reason I’m just not a huge cake lover. These cupcakes definitely changed my mind! I’m telling you… they are that good! The secret ingredients are the pudding mix and sour cream! The flavor is fantastic.
