Do you need a recipe for the best double chocolate cupcakes recipe ever? These are really moist chocolate ones made from a cake mix, but you add pudding, sour cream, and a few other ingredients to make them even moister. The thing I love about this recipe is the fact that I have always got the ingredients in my pantry.

I love chocolate so this recipe is a natural one for me!

Double Chocolate Cupcakes

At Christmas time I add a little DoTerra peppermint essential oil to my favorite Cream Cheese Frosting. These are always a hit at any party or group gathering because people love chocolate. I think looking at a platter full of cute little cakes are always inviting. Here is another Mini Cupcake Recipe you might enjoy.

Have you ever tasted cupcakes from Sprinkles Cupcakes in Corona Del Mar/Newport Beach, California? Oh my gosh, they are the best ones I have ever tasted. I know this is crazy, but when I go visit family in California, they know I will order three dozen of those Sprinkles treats and we will enjoy every last morsel of them. I am not a big spender but these are a little pricey and each mouthful is worth every cent.

There is something about family reunions that takes me right to that Sprinkles store. They only sell certain flavors certain days, so I have to strategically plan the days when I preorder the cupcakes to pick up. If you don’t call ahead you will stand in line for 30 minutes.

My favorite ones are banana and chocolate marshmallow. Delicious!! It looks like the location in New York has an ATM available where you can pick up the cupcakes on demand. I love it!

Bake for about 26-28 minutes. Frost with cream cheese frosting or your favorite frosting. I add a little peppermint flavoring and a tiny bit of red food coloring in the frosting for the holidays. It looks pink and white swirled in if you don’t completely mix in the food coloring. You can add 1/8 cup unsweetened cocoa if you want chocolate frosting and skip the food coloring.

    Love your recipe but…I have gone all low carb/Keto on you!! So, I am looking for recipes with almond, coconut flours and low carb sweeteners. I think I found a chocolate cupcake/cake recipe in another blog for Keto! Carolyn Ketcham has some amazing recipes for people like me!!

    The biggest issue I have with 99.9% of all recipes is the number of servings! Just saying that I cannot make most things that are from 4-6+ servings. So, I work at cutting recipes down to 1-2 servings. Especially important to me is cutting down the sweets and snacky recipes!! If I make the number of servings in a recipe for those, I end up eating all of them and it is such a “waist” – pun intended!!! Worst part is that some recipes do not lend themselves to cutting down to manageable servings!

    Anyway, Linda, I do love your blog/recipes.

      Hi Leanne, I hear you on cutting down on sugar, calories, and carbs. I share these recipes so when we do need all the calories we can easily make them. Life is good with a little chocolate when the world gets crazy. Linda
