Whip up a batch of rich chocolate cupcakes topped with lick-the-spoon worthy icing. Decorate them with sprinkles, if you can resist the urge to eat them right away.

 

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a 6-cup standard-size muffin tin with paper or foil liners.

Step 2

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, vanilla and 1/2 cup sugar. Add 1/3 of flour mixture to mayonnaise mixture, then stir in 1/2 cup water. Fold in remaining flour mixture, stirring until batter is smooth. Stir in mini chocolate chips.

Step 3

Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin and bake until cupcakes are firm, 20 minutes. Let cupcakes cool completely in muffin tin.

Step 4

Combine heavy cream, remaining 1 Tbsp. sugar and remaining cocoa powder and whip with an electric mixer on high speed until cream just holds stiff peaks. Top each cupcake with whipped cream and serve.
