Chocolate Cupcakes

Looks like I'm still stuck on cupcakes! Lucky for me and my pile of printed cupcake recipes, we have a birthday girl at work today. She has a deep fondness for chocolate, so I made Chocolate Cupcakes for her of course! We were very pleased with the recipe and at least for now it will be my chocolate cupcake recipe of choice - they really are that good. They are topped with Fudge Frosting from a Betty Crocker cookbook that we received as a wedding present. Keith isn't fond of powdered sugar frostings, so wanted to try this one and I'm glad he did. Pure fudgy delight!

I have also joined the Honor Your Husband 30 Day Challenge. I'm not sure how much of this I'll share with the world, but I think it's an awesome thing to do. Keith and I have been married for 27 years and still thoroughly enjoy being together. This challenge came at a good time for us as we are just now facing an empty nest for the first time. Since this is a fresh new start for the two of us, it's good to keep the challenge in mind.

Your cupcakes look delicious.

Congratulations on 27 years of marriage. We will be 28 in Sept. We did the empty nest for 4 years while DS was in college. He's back home getting his MBA locally so we're not Empty Nest right now.
Enjoy it though ....we had a wonderful 4 years of new explorations. It can be a wonderful experience.

UMMMMMM! UMMMMMM! UMMMMMM! Those look delicious. I can only imagine the sweet taste of chocolate.
I really like this challenge. Its a great one. I can see where it would benefit me to do some of the things she suggest. Like greet him at the door. I use to do that long ago. Now I am one of those that waves from a distance. I will secretly follow along and try some of the suggestons. Thanks for sharing the link Cupcake!!!
