Chocolate Cupcakes

Chocolate cupcakes with chocolate buttercream frosting. There are a lot of amazing desserts out there, but chocolate-y chocolate desserts always seem to top my list of favorites. This recipe is delicious, moist and, best of all, it's easy (see directions below). Top this off with the amazing chocolate buttercream dream frosting (recipe to follow) and you're in heaven.
