Double Trouble Chocolate Cupcakes

Today is my BF`s 26th birthday, and at his job it`s common to bring something sweet to work on their birthdays. So yesterday was filled up with cupcakes all over the place. I made like three batches of cupcakes and I also started on a Raspberry mousse cake that`ll be the birthday cake here at home. One of the cupcake recipes I made was this super delicious Double Trouble Chocolate Cupcakes. They contain chocolate in both the batter and the frosting. It`s such a treat, so I hope the people at BF`s work enjoy them!

    • as I named them, they really are double trouble. so much chocolate, so much goodness. WOW! I wish I had the same will power as you! I think the only way I could manage to stay away from sweets was if someone paid me money for it ๐Ÿ˜›

    • hahaha, me too. And it`s really dangerous for me, because I still have a lot of these in my fridge, and it`s getting close to dinner time here in Norway, so I better go eat some decent food before I start robbing the fridge to devour them all! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. I need to make something Norwegian for my class, these look amazing, but I was just wondering if they are “Norwegian” or not.
