We love chocolate cupcakes so much, we'd marry them if we could. Fluffy, rich chocolate topped with light, fudgy frosting is just to die for. And we know we aren't the only ones who feel this way, since somebody loved chocolate cupcakes so much that they dedicated an entire day -- Oct. 18 -- to the indulgent chocolate treats.
We certainly can't pass up an opportunity to celebrate, so we combed the internet for you for our favorite ultimate, shamelessly loaded chocolate cupcakes that you should whip up ASAP. Enjoy!
