Chocolate Cup Cakes

Chocolate Cup Cakes

That special and sought after time of the year for our precious Lil munchkins is here….14th Nov. aka Children’s day has finally arrived.

Since most children including mine love chocolate….. I figured this super way to surprise my son by baking these scrumptious “Chocolate Cup Cakes”. Extremely easy to make even for a novice in the kitchen and literally a 10-minute recipe, this sinful treat is deliciously gooey and simply melts in your mouth.

Really hope these cupcakes bring a twinkle in those innocent eyes back home like they unfailingly do with my son!!!
