Chocolate Cupcake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I love to bake, especially cupcakes.  I mean, cupcakes are just the perfect dessert, don’t you think?  They’re cute, portable, and just the right size/serving for a person.  Cupcakes just make me happy (what can I say, I’m easy to please).  During law school, I started making these chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting for many fundraising events different student organizations held, and these cupcakes sort of became my signature cupcakes during those dark years of my life (okay okay, as much as I disliked law school, I had some great times there … outside of the classroom).

These cupcakes are delicious.  If you like light cupcakes, however, you should walk away now, because I will warn you, these cupcakes are on the dense side. They taste like moist chocolate brownies, which goes really well with the smooth cream cheese frostings.  Mmmm.  Cupcakes are a weakness of mine, and with these, I’ve been known to have two (or three, shhh) in one sitting – back to back – don’t judge!  Lol.  Plus, these are pretty easy to make and are always a hit with friends (for a recipe that yields 30, I really hope you’re sharing these! … at least 2 or 3 of them).  Regardless of how you decide to distribute these delicious bites of goodness, I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do.  And, if you have any leftovers (and I doubt you will), mail them to me! :) {continue reading…}
