For any and all of you starting the new year with a goal to be a little lighter on your feet, these cupcakes can make that happen without the guilt.

They’re incredibly moist and chocolatey, and the frosting is delicious and rich – without being too sweet, like many frostings can, and in all this yummy goodness, these cakes are lower on fat than your average sweet. Win, win?

Reindeer Cupcakes

Reindeer Cupcakes

Christmas Day is finally here, and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate than by toasting to Santa’s main man, Rudolph.

These adorable reindeer cupcakes pay homage to the outcast reindeer who lit the way for gifts and goodies and went down in history. They’re likely to go the same way, after they hit taste buds and tummies.

Santa. Your reindeer taste so good. In the form of a super moist, super chocolatey cupcake.

Of course, Rudolph and his friends are covered in whipped chocolate frosting that tastes almost mousse like and then decorated with chocolate covered pretzels, mini Nilla Wafers and M&Ms. Seriously, I never knew Reindeer could taste so good!

Hot Cocoa Cupcakes

Hot Cocoa Cupcakes

Like a cup of hot cocoa in cupcake form! ← Even more amazing than it sounds! These homemade chocolate cupcakes, topped with a gooey toasted marshmallows, taste just like a creamy cup of hot cocoa.

The cupcake base is supremely moist, ultra fluffy, and full of rich, decadent chocolate flavor. The batter is made with eggs, egg yolk, melted butter, oil, sour cream, and hot coffee. All of these ingredients add intense moisture and flavor to the cupcake, and I do not recommend leaving any of them out. This is a recipe I suggest following to a T. Why mess with perfection? ;)

Chile Mocha Cupcakes

Chile Mocha Cupcakes

So here is my new obsession; these chile mocha cupcakes. They are of course inspired by the new Starbucks fall drink, the chile mocha.

A sweet combination of cocoa, cinnamon with a small kick from ancho and cayenne chile. The true definition of sweet and spicy if you ask me and just what you need for those mornings when you need an extra kick. Like today!!!

Chocolate Bourbon Cupcakes with Butter Pecan Frosting

Chocolate Bourbon Cupcakes with Butter Pecan Frosting

Really is there a better way to use bourbon than mixed with butter and chocolate? These chocolate bourbon cupcakes alone are insanely good!

The flavor is just out of this world and the bourbon highlights the chocolate so well. Then add the butter pecan frosting that could be eaten by the spoonful and you may just have one of the most delicious cupcakes of the season!

Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

These Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes are a chocolate lover’s dream. The chocolate cupcakes are moist and light, supporting the weight of a whipped chocolate glaze.

The glaze is made with coconut milk so it does lend the faintest coconut flavor, but most people won’t be able to detect it (alternatively, for a non-vegan version, you could easily substitute the coconut milk for heavy cream). These cupcakes are perfect to feed to those with dairy/egg allergies, vegans, or for anyone who loves a rich chocolate cupcake!
