Ingredients

1 c
self rising flour
1/4 c
sugar
1/4 c
each semisweet and milk chocolate chips
1
egg, lightly beaten
1/2 c
milk
3 Tbsp
butter, melted
1/2 tsp
vanilla extract

CHOCOLATE FROSTING

1 1/2 oz
semisweet chocolate, chopped
2 Tbsp
heavy cream
3/4 Tbsp
butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a 6 cup standard muffin pan with paper liners. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and sugar, then add the chocolate chips. In a small mixing bowl, combine the egg, milk, melted butter, and vanilla. Add the flour mixture and stir until just moistened.
2
Divide the mix among the prepared muffin cups. Bake until the tops spring back when lightly tapped, 20-25 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
3
For the frosting, put the chocolate, cream and butter in a heatproof bowl over but not touching a pan of simmering water. Stir gently over low heat until smooth. Chill until firm but spreadable, then pipe or spread over the cooled cupcakes.
