Chocolate Cupcakes for Two

Do your plans for Valentine’s Day include a quiet dinner at home with your sweetie?

Do you want to make an easy & chocolatey sweet treat without having a ton of left overs that you will end up eating giving away?

Look no further; these chocolate cupcakes are the dessert for you!

When I found this recipe at An Edible Mosaic, I was a bit leery to try it. I haven’t had much success with egg-less or vegan recipes in the past.  I’m so very happy that I decided to give these cupcakes a shot. They might be one of the BEST chocolate cupcakes I have ever had. They are extremely moist and rich.

My version of these cupcakes are not vegan but if you would like to make them vegan simply swap the milk in the recipe with the vegan milk of your choice.

Since I almost always have left over frosting in the fridge, I topped these with butter cream that I had on hand. Feel free to top with your favorite homemade or canned ( I wont judge) frosting.
