Recipe // Banana and Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Hello there and happy Saturday morning. Last night while Chris was at work I was baking up a new cupcake recipe and let me tell you, O M G. There cupcakes turned out so good and scrumptious, I can't stop eating them. I used a yellow cake box mix for this recipe instead of making them from scratch like usual, mainly because it was faster and easier. But if you are against that, go right ahead and use a from scratch recipe. They even work as a quick breakfast, minus the frosting. The banana and chocolate chips make it almost like a muffin, then you ad the frosting and BAM it's dessert. Definitely a recipe to try out!

Banana and Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Creamy Chocolate Frosting

1 box yellow cake mix
2-3 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 eggs
1 bag mini chocolate chips
1 1/2 TBL flour
1 box banana runt cadies

In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, bananas, water, butter and eggs until smooth. Add chocolate chips and flour until combined into batter. Divide batter into cupcake tins and bake at 325 degrees for 18-22 minutes.

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

1/2 cup butter, softened
3 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
3 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
3-4 TBL milk

In a small pot, melt baking chocolate over low heat. Let cool and then mix with butter until smooth. Add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time. Add vanilla and milk and mix until the frosting becomes creamy. If the frosting gets to thick, add more milk. If it gets to thin, add more powdered sugar.
