Chocolate Pretzel Cupcakes

What really makes a cupcake a cupcake?!

Pretty sure it’s just a muffin with frosting.


I used my Double Chocolate Muffin recipe for these beauties!
Just a couple minor changes and boom!

Chocolate Pretzel Cupcakes!!


They are great plain, but 10 times better with the little extras.

Call me crazy…
Call me lazy…
Call me “unhealthy”…
Call me what you want, but I love frosting from a jar!!

You all know it’s the best!!


You could use greek yogurt, cream cheese, or whip up some protein “frosting”… but since the base cupcake is pretty guilt free I figured What the Heck?!



Don’t forget a teeny tiny pretzel for the salty crunch factor!

Seriously…not optional!!


If you love chocolate, which we all do…

You will love these!!
