These chocolate, chocolate chip cupcakes are crave worthy. In a way, it’s kind of funny. I thought that I was making the fabulous one bowl chocolate cupcakes recipe I shared just the other week!

As I was mixing together the ingredients it dawned on me that I wasn’t making the cupcake recipe I thought I was. I was bummed for about half a second until I realized that either way, I end up with cupcakes! These are so good.

Although it wasn’t what I originally wanted, we really enjoyed these. The chocolate frosting was the perfect touch. It would seem like that would be too much chocolate but somehow–it all worked! They made exactly twelve cupcakes. Unfortunately, the original poster did not bother to provide original credit to the recipe so I am unsure of where these originated. Sigh.
