Nothing says Valentines Day quite like one of these Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream Frosting – and of course the chocolate hearts are a must! These are some of the most decadent cupcakes I’ve ever made – and in such a good way! They are rich and luscious and oh so irresistibly chocolatey! This is definitely one of my new favorite chocolate cupcake recipes (and if you want to make it more of a milder milk chocolate cupcake just reduce the cocoa 2 Tbsp and up the flour 2 more Tbsp, I tested them out both ways but definitely preferred the darker version here paired with the sweetness of the raspberry frosting). They are somewhat dense and deliciously fudgy and you’ll want to make them again and again.
