Easy Moist Chocolate Cupcakes

These decadent chocolate cupcakes are super moist, soft and fudgy. They are topped with a whipped chocolate ganache for a silky-smooth finish. This one-bowl recipe is just as easy as using a cake mix and tastes even better.



Whipped Chocolate Ganache Frosting




  1. Place the chocolate chip in a large heat-proof glass bowl and set aside.
  2. Pour the whipping cream into a small saucepan and place on the stovetop over medium heat. Bring the cream to a gentle simmer.
  3. Pour the hot cream on top of the chocolate chips and let it steep for 5 minutes without stirring.
  4. Slowly whisk the cream and melted chocolate together until combined and smooth.
  5. Place in the fridge for one hour to thicken.
  6. Beat the chocolate ganache on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. Pipe onto the cupcakes as desired. I used a Wilton 2D piping tip.


*Use good-quality chocolate chips like Hershey’s or Ghirardelli brand. They melt better and tastes better as well.
