Triple Chocolate Cupcakes are decadent.They are sweet and sinful. In other words, they are downright heavenly. How could they not be?! Not only are they homemade chocolate cupcakes made from scratch, but they have a dose of bittersweet chocolate chips thrown in. And then to top it all off (literally) they are frosted with a silky, creamy, homemade chocolate frosting. So when you sit down to eat the whole batch, like I imagine you might, just make sure that you have a glass of milk or two.
I haven’t had many desserts around the house lately but yesterday, when I was sitting on my couch catching up on some Lifetime movies, I decided it was time to make one. I began looking in the pantry to see what I could throw together and noticed one thing: chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. Since Ryan is always asking me to make cupcakes and I had a rather disastrous experience attempting to make cookies a couple of weeks ago, I decided to try my hand at some chocolate cupcakes.
Judging by Ryan’s reaction after trying these triple chocolate cupcakes, I am confident I made the right choice.
Update: This post was originally posted in 2011. I decided that it was time to update the photos in 2016.
I also upped the amount of cocoa in the chocolate frosting, because obviously these decadent cupcakes needed MORE chocolate. These changes made these Triple Chocolate Cupcakes even better! And when I wrote this original post back in 2011, there weren’t two other little taste testers around. They are here now though, and they love these triple chocolate cupcakes too! How could you not?
Speaking of triple chocolate, I can’t wait to try these triple chocolate cookies, these triple chocolate brownies, and this triple chocolate brownie pie!

I made this recipe today sans the frosting so they’re just muffins without it. They were absolutely yummy! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Those look incredible! And how can you go wrong…chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. What else could you ask for…….well besides maybe one more chocolate?? :)
