Default Hot Chocolate Cupcakes


Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.

Dry Ingredients:
    • 2 cups flour
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 2 teaspoons baking soda
    • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
    • 2 cup sugar
Wet Ingredients:

    • 1 cup vegetable oil
    • 1 cup hot chocolate
    • 1 cup milk
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla

First, you're gonna need an electric mixer. It doesn't have to be electric; if you're Amish or something you can just use a spoon. But that's hard work and this is supposed to be fun.

After you've acquired a mixer, dump in the right amounts of all the dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa, sugar). Mix it all up with a fork until it looks like chocolatey sand.

Start adding the wet ingredients. Now it doesn't really matter, but I typically add the eggs, milk, vanilla, and vegetable oil first. And THEN....................

Make yourself a cup of hot chocolate. Like, get out a mug, fill it with hot water and mix in a packet of hot chocolate powder. Pour the hot chocolate in with the rest of the ingredients and fire up the mixer. The cupcake batter should be very thin and runny, like chocolate cupcake soup.

Next, pull out two cupcake pans and line them with cupcake papers. Get a spoon or a small measuring cup or a ladle and start pouring the cupcake batter into the papers. For big, fluffy, delicious cupcakes, fill each paper about 3/4 of the way. If you want smaller, yet equally as fluffy and delicious cupcakes, fill each paper about 1/2 of the

Pop it in the oven for 25-30 minutes. I usually go for about 27 minutes but it really depends on the strength of your oven.

While you're waiting for them to cool, go ahead and get started on the frosting. You will need:
    • 1/4 cup margarine, melted
    • 1/3 cup milk
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
    • 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar

For the frosting, pull out your trusty electric mixer again. Pour in the melted butter and cocoa powder and mix them together at a low speed. After they are mixed together smoothly, add in the vanilla and milk. You'll have a liquidy chocolate mess on your hands now, so add in the powdered sugar until it magically turns into frosting. It should be fairly stiff and able to hang off your whisk without running.

Does the hot chocolate make the cupcakes too moist and would you suggest it for a birthday party or is it too messy?
