I hate my roommate cupcakes

Hey hey hey, so these cupcakes aren't for sharing especially with your stupid, messy, selfish, irresponsible roommate...or any other dumb people HAHAHAHAHA!
Yeah I know that's kind of not nice...but sometimes it's okay to not be nice and sometimes it's okay not to share!

So put on some angry music grab a bottle of rum and here we go...

what you'll need:

2 bars of Lint chocolate with chili (other brands work but I think Lint is the best...also its not too spicy, it just has a creamy warm taste mmmmm...)

1 1/2 cups of flour

1 cup of sugar

3 tbs. dark cocoa powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. vinigar

5 tbs. veg. oil

1 cup cold water

(although the actual cake is vegan, these cupcakes are not, because of the lint chocolate and because we are topping them with whipped cream.)

For the whipped cream:

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1/4 cup sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

So now that you have everything together pour another drink, get out the cupcake pan put in the liners and pre-heat the oven to 350.
Take your first chocolate bar and melt it, (in the microwave for 30sec. at a time or dubble boil it on the stove). but the melted chocolate in a pastry bag with a fine tip (if you don't have one a plastic baggie will do or you can even use a spoon.) on a cookie sheet covered with wax/ parchment paper make small designs then freeze.

Another drink and then, take the other bar of the chocolate and chop it into fairly small peaces. (I like to grate it sometimes to almost a powder but if you want more of a chocolate chip affect that fine too)

set that aside and make your cake, put all the dry ingredients in first, then the wet...this is a super easy cake you don't have to worry too much about the order things go in all all that junk.

mix the batter till the chunks are gone, it will be very liquidy. dump the chocolate peaces in and mix it up.

fill your cupcakes 3/4 of the way full so that they have a nice round top...unless you're DJ Jazzy Jeff flat tops are lame. bake them for about 15-20 min. (you will be able to smell them when they are done and the toothpick should come out clean.)

We are frosting these with whipped cream and the chocolate designs we made. Whipped cram is easy but you don't want to make it until you are ready to eat it so when you are just dump the cream, sugar and vanilla in the mixer and whip it.

Top you cooled cupcakes with whip cream and chocolate designs and enjoy (alone) ha.
