Why is everything is always so much better in mini-form? Really and truly though, everything just is so much better in smaller version. Babies, baby clothes, (everything baby). But I especially love smaller versions of food! And these mini-cupcakes are definitely one of my favorites. And the best part is, you feel like you can eat more when things are smaller. Win win.I love making mini-cupcakes mostly for parties. I make sure that I have at least 3-4 different flavors for my guests, so that I can have a good variety. It’s important to offer choices that appeal to everyone (well, most everyone). It should always be standard though to have a great chocolate cupcake as one of the options. And let me tell you, this recipe is “that chocolate cupcake” that you’re going to want to have in your recipe box. It’s my absolute favorite and will soon be your favorite too.I have two chocolate cupcake recipes that I like to use. I have this recipe that I like, which is a great dense chocolate cupcake. But this recipe I’m sharing today is a recipe that has a more tender crumb, is super moist and the flavor is out of this world. There’s a secret ingredient in this recipe and it’s a key ingredient that lends to the moisture in the recipe is. You might never guess what it is, so I’ll tell you. The ingredient is mayonnaise. Yep, I know. It probably doesn’t sound like the best ingredient for your cupcakes. But let me just tell you that you must give it a try. And then you’ll wonder why you didn’t know about it sooner.I promise you’re going to want to make this recipe soon and I guarantee you’ll soon have some of the best chocolate cupcakes you’ve ever had! Read through the recipe first and make sure you have all of the ingredients on hand and ready to go. I sure hope you’ll love this one as much as I do.
