Classic Boxed Chocolate Cupcake Recipe

A couple of weeks ago for Mother’s Day, I made my mom chocolates cupcakes with vanilla icing and wrote her a meaningful letter instead of giving her a meaningless material item. When choosing a recipe, I decided to go with the theme of unconditional love and used pink baking cups, pink pearl cupcake candies, and sparkly foam hearts. They were a huge success and I wanted to share them with you this mistake proof recipe!
