Looking for the perfect chocolate cupcake recipe, then look no further. This is the best moist chocolate mocha cupcake recipe creating a perfectly moist, extremely chocolate cupcake, topped with a supreme fudgy chocolate icing.
The cake is moist and light with the perfect chocolate texture. Coffee mixed into the batter gives this cupcake a sweet hint of mocha. When my daughter Faith made these she said they were quick and easy to whip up a batch.
The frosting is an intense fudgy chocolate buttercream frosting. This is the frosting that you will not want to share licking the bowl when you are done icing the cupcakes! What's even better, this frosting is super easy to make. I found the recipe over at My Frugal Adventures , oh so yummy!
To make these cupcakes a little more special my daughter added chopped Whoppers crumbs sprinkled and then a whole Whopper on top of the fudgy icing.
