To make the cupcakes:

Scoop the batter into your individual muffins liners filling them about halfway to allow room for them to rise.

Bake for approximately 18 minutes or until you can stick a toothpick in them and it comes out clean.

To make the frosting:

Add the butter and cocoa powder to a bowl or mixer and cream together starting slow. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla, heavy cream and mix. If the frosting appears to be too thick add a little more heavy cream until the desired consistency is reached.

Once the muffins have completely cooled, add the frosting as desired.

Once the muffins have completely cooled, add the frosting as desired.

Non-stick cupcake liners were used for this recipe. I found them really useful for this recipe because I didn’t have to add any additional cooking spray to my muffin pan.

Enjoy!
