    EASY one-bowl chocolate cupcakes

    easy one bowl cupcakes

    We all have those ‘go-to-receipes’ that just seem to always work & are super easy, don’t we? I often don’t plan to bake, unless it is for a special occasion. It just seems to happen depending upon my mood of the day & what the little munchkins are up to. Sometimes I like to be adventurous, & other times I just want to wipp something up super quickly. These cupcakes are those one-bowl kinda cupcakes that has minimal mess but all the super chocolate cupcake goodness. Nothing is compromised in that department. The original recipe is found here.

    1 1/2 teaspoons salt
