{VIDEO} Chocolate Cupcakes For Two (No Egg, No Butter & No Dairy Options!)


This recipe makes exactly TWO moist, fudgy chocolate cupcakes, in one bowl, right in the toaster oven! And the cupcake recipe doesn't even have any eggs, butter, or milk!!!

Topped with a creamy buttercream frosting, this recipe is perfect for Valentine's Day, an anniversary or extra special small-batch after dinner treat. The batter comes together in one bowl in minutes. Then just pour it between two cupcake liners. 

You can bake these up in some little silicone baking cups right on the baking sheet, too. 

Another trick is to take the lids of some mason jars and place the cupcake liners right in the tops on a baking sheet. 

Pop them in the toaster oven and viola! These cupcakes are extra moist, packed with flavor, and have a super fudgy, tender crumb.

You can even add fun flavorings to the frosting, like strawberry extract, or flavored liquors!

Try not to eat all of the chocolate buttercream, before the cupcakes are done cooling ;)

Don't forget the sprinkles!

Dig in and enjoy!
