Ingredients for the Best Chocolate Cupcakes:

  • 1⅓ cups all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ½ cup boiling water

Extra magic ingredient: Salted Dark Chocolate Espresso Syrup by Skinny Mixes (available here)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a cupcake tin with paper liners.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream together the softened butter,  granulated sugar, and the Skinny Mixes syryp until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, alternating with the milk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  6. With the mixer on low speed, slowly pour in the boiling water. The batter will be thin, but that's what makes these cupcakes so moist and delectable.
  7. Fill each cupcake liner about two-thirds full with batter.
  8. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  9. Allow the cupcakes to cool in the tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
