We know your first question: What makes these cupcakes the best? The answer is a two-parter. The first, they’re huge. Our Ultimate Chocolate Cupcakesrecipe calls for jumbo baking cups and a jumbo muffin pan—no minis here. Beyond their size, these cupcakes earn their extreme title thanks to an indulgent duo of chocolate that takes them into over-the-top territory. Both unsweetened baking chocolate and semisweet baking chocolate are mixed into the batter. Now, for the frosting. Our homemade version is made simply with semisweet chocolate morsels, softened butter, powdered sugar, whipping cream, vanilla extract, and a dash of table salt. The result is a perfectly decadent frosting to finish those over-the-top cupcakes. This recipe makes 12 cupcakes, which is perfect for a small birthday gathering or for bringing to a neighbor. Bake a second batch for a bake sale because we guarantee these gems will be gone in a flash.
