With this easy chocolate cupcake recipe, you can indulge in a love-filled dessert comprising both in under 30 minutes! To make these small-batch chocolate cupcakes with raspberry frosting, it’s best to use simple, all-natural ingredients. 

Although they may seem like dessert foods, what do we really know about raspberries and chocolate? Well, for one, chocolate is a powerhouse of health benefits.

And what do raspberries have to offer?  —  more antioxidants, as well as fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Now marry them in your oven! 

After you got the raspberry frosting down pat, you’ll want to put it on nearly everything —  cakes, ice cream, hot chocolate, you name it! So let’s start cracking the eggs and whippin’ the cream!
