While these chocolate spice cupcakes for two take only five minutes of prep time and “bake” in the microwave for just ninety seconds, there is nothing simple about their taste. Brown sugar, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice bring the best part of the classic spice cake to a cupcake that will thrill chocolate lovers. Serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream and festive sprinkles.
Be sure to microwave the cupcakes in silicone cupcake liners – paper liners won’t hold their shape and foil liners are not microwave safe.
