Friends that eat chocolate together, stay together.

It’s true.  The endorphins that kick in while eating chocolate make you happier; when you’re happier you like the people you’re around more.  Naturally, whoever you’re around when you eat chocolate, you’ll end up liking them alot in the long run.

See, I told you I didn’t just open that bag of chocolate chips for a snack last night.

I owed a friend some cupcakes whose love for chocolate overpowers even mine.

Double Chocolate Chocolate Cupcakes

3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 Tbsp dark cocoa powder
1 egg
4 Tbsp shortening (substituting oil works, too!)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup Ghiradelli 60% cacao chocolate chips
1/4 cup milk

Measure out dry ingredients

Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder in a small bowl.

In a large mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugar. Add egg; mix. Add vanilla; mix. Alternate mixing in flour mixture and milk.



That melting chocolate is seriously making my mouth water..

Please excuse the odd decorations and focus on the chocolaty goodness
