Moist Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes

Looking for the perfect Valentine's Day dessert for the chocolate lover in your life? Celebrate this special occasion with easy chocolate cupcake recipe!

About an hour before baking, on your counter, place eggs, buttermilk, and full-fat Greek yogurt (or sour cream) so they reach room temperature.

Preheat your oven to 350°F, and line a standard muffin tin with 12 paper liners.

To a large bowl, add and whisk together all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, dutch processed cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, espresso powder, and kosher salt. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together your vanilla extract, eggs, greek yogurt (or sour cream), buttermilk, and oil.

Pour your hot water into the bowl of dry ingredients. Mix so that some of the dry ingredients begin to moisten, and then pour bowl of wet ingredients into this one. Mix again until all ingredients are fully incorporated.

Pour and evenly spread the cupcake batter into your prepared cupcake liners. Bake for 16-18 minutes or until cupcakes bounce back at the touch of your finger.

Let cupcakes cool in pan about 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.

Swirl frosting onto moist chocolate fudge cupcakes and top with sprinkles if desired!
