In February we made Glazed Cinnamon Rolls and in January, Nut-Crusted Chocolate-Banana Swirl Cake. Both were delicious so I was looking forward to making these chocolaty cupcakes. But then life got in the way and I was super busy at the beginning of the month so I decided to skip this month. But then...I took a look at the cupcakes that my fellow ABCers made and had a family game night coming up so...I had to give them a go. I'm really glad that I did because they were easy and delicious. I followed the changes that Hanaâ made (you can find her Emergency Blender Cupcakes recipe here) and came out with 12 moist and scrumptious chocolate cupcakes. They were a big hit - my husband ate three (so I guess he liked them!) and the rest disappeared by the end of game night. All of the ingredients are pantry staples, so I will definitely make these again.
A few pictures:

Bye for now...
