Chocolate Chunk Cupcakes are just the thing when you want a homemade dessert without a lot of fuss. These are great for sharing with a crowd!
When I get the urge to bake, I’ll pick simple over elaborate most every time. I realized long ago that dessert doesn’t have to be over the top to be really, really good. In fact, that’s essentially my baking mantra. If you’re with me, then you’re going to love these Chocolate Chunk Cupcakes!
While these cupcakes might not offer anything revolutionary in the baking realm, they do a very good job of being that magical combination of simple and delicious. And that goes a very long way in my book.
These are also my favorite kind of cupcakes to bake. I don’t really get into full-out decorating. Honestly, my frosting skills are a bit lacking as well. I do go the traditional route now and then, but these are the type of cupcakes that generally pique my interest and get me in the kitchen.
The best thing about these cupcakes, other than their simplicity, is that they are so chocolate-y. To me, they have a far better chocolate flavor than a standard chocolate cupcake. As with any recipe that heavily features chocolate, I highly recommend that you use the very best chocolate you can. It will definitely make a difference.
If you’re in need of a quick and easy dessert for most any occasion, these Chocolate Chunk Cupcakes fit the bill. Bake a batch for game day, an office party, book club, or most any causal gathering that warrants dessert. And as the incomparable Julia Child once said, “A party without cake is just a meeting.”

Looks very yummy!! I love anything with chocolate chunks =) I was wondering how did you store your cupcakes? I want to make them the night before but dont want them to end up too soft on the tops if jammed into an airtight container. Any suggestions would be great!
I put them in a single layer in a big, airtight container. That preserved the tops well for me.
they are gorgeous 🙂
They look so yummy!
That looks absolutely delicious! I haven’t eaten dinner and I’m drooling over this.

I LOVE rustic cupcakes.
I call them muffins and then justify them as a breakfast food.

Hi dear I just want to know about the ingredient of choc chunk of cake , actually there’s ( emulsifiers mono and diglycerides) is that any thing from animal or any alcohol because we are vegetarian so please let me know about this ingredients.
I would assume that could vary among manufacturers. The ingredients’ packagings should list the all of the ingredients.
