If you want to try it at home, this blog provides a step-by-step guide for making these triple chocolate cupcakes with simple ingredients and an easy-to-follow recipe.

Triple chocolate cupcakes are made in three steps at home: baking the sponge, preparing the frosting, and decorating the cupcakes. First, we will create a chocolate sponge made from melted milk chocolate and cocoa powder. The second step is frosting; for that, we will prepare delicious, creamy, chocolaty buttercream frosting. The third step is decorating the cupcake using mini chocolate chips and chocolate drizzle. So, let’s start preparing these triple chocolate cupcakes.

Step 1: Baking the Sponge

Step 1: Baking the Sponge

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar (granulated)
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Instructions for Baking:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F /175°C and line a muffin tin with paper cupcake liners.
  2. Add all the dry ingredients, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder, in a large bowl and whisk together.
  3. Now add the wet ingredients: vegetable oil, warm water, egg and vanilla extract to the bowl. Whisk until a smooth, even mixture is formed.

(Ensure that no lumps are left while mixing, but be careful not to overmix.)

  1. Use a scoop or tablespoons to divide the batter into lined muffin cups. Fill each cupcake liner with two-thirds batter.
  2. Bake for 18-20 minutes and perform the toothpick test; if it comes out clean, it is ready for frosting; if not, bake for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  3. Place a pan on a cooling rack and wait until it is completely cool.

Step 2: Prepare the Frosting

Ingredients you need to prepare chocolate frosting:

  • 1 cup butter (unsalted, softened/0
  • 3 cups sugar (powdered)
  • ½ cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 ounces milk chocolate (unsweetened, melted and cooled)

Instructions to Prepare Frosting

  1. Add softened butter and beat until its texture is creamy.
  2. Gradually add the powdered sugar and cocoa powder and mix until smooth and well combined.
  3. Add vanilla extract and a pinch of salt and beat.
  4. Now add the melted chocolate and mix until a fluffy mixture is formed.
  5. If the frosting is thick, add a tablespoon of cream or milk and beat until the desired frosting consistency is reached.

Step 3: Decorate Your Cupcakes

Ingredients you need for decorating your chocolate cupcakes:

  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Chocolate drizzle
  • Chocolate sprinkles (optional)

Instructions for decoration

  1. Once your cupcakes are cooled completely, pipe a cooled buttercream onto the chocolate cupcakes in the desired pattern.

(Never pipe a buttercream frosting on the hot cupcakes, as there is a risk of melting)

  1. Sprinkle chocolate shavings, mini chocolate chips, or chocolate sprinkles on top of the frosting. This will not only make your chocolate cupcakes irresistibly appealing but also add a chocolatey crunch to your cupcakes when the chocolate chips melt in your mouth with each bite.
  2. For the extra velvety touch of chocolatey flavour to your cupcakes, add melted chocolate on the top using a pipping bag or spoon.

And just like that, in a few simple steps, your delicious homemade triple chocolate cupcakes are ready to enjoy! Serve this fresh, fluffy and delicious chocolatey delight to your friends and family and indulge in the ultimate chocolate experience.
