Small Batch Chocolate Cupcakes

I love baking. I love baked goods. Who doesn’t?

No one can trusted with full batch of anything in my house.

As a result, I don’t bake much. My dessert section has been suffering!

One cupcake turns into two and then I’m like:

Sweet & Simple- Dessert for Two, solves my baking needs.

Christina has figured out all of the formulas to downsize most baked goods into portions that serve 2-3. Small batch lifestyling!

There are 3 of us in my house.

This recipe makes 4 cupcakes.

Either way, we all get one!  This recipe reminds me a little of that moment in Bridesmaids when Kristen Wiig makes that single cupcake. Wasn’t that scene kind of the best??

But here, there are four!  My whole family is taken care of with these Small Batch Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean Frosting. Perfect for a last minute Valentine’s day baking session or a whip up a batch because it’s Tuesday and that’s how we live situation!
