    For Chocolate Cupcakes:
  • 1 cup milk.
  • 1-1/2 tsp baking soda.
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder.
  • 1 cup boiling water.
  • 2 eggs.
  • 2 cups granulated sugar.
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil.
  • 1-1/2 tsp baking powder.
  • 1 tsp salt.
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour.
  • For Pretzel Buttercream:
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract.
  • 2 cups powdered sugar.
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened.
  • 3/4 cup ground pretzels (about 2 cups whole pretzels).

    For Chocolate Cupcakes:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two muffin tins with baking cups.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir in eggs, milk, and vegetable oil until combined. Carefully stir in boiling water, mixing until combined and batter has thinned.
  3. Fill baking cups 2/3 of the way full. Bake for 20-22 minutes, transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.
  4. For Pretzel Buttercream:
  5. In a large bowl, cream together butter and powdered sugar. Stir in vanilla extract, then fold in the ground pretzels. Since the pretzels really thicken up the buttercream, don’t try to pipe the frosting. Instead, scoop the frosting on top of the cupcake and spread into a cute little mound.
  6. If you want to heavily frost your cupcakes, like in the photos, you’ll need to double this recipe. Top with chocolate covered pretzels, if desired.
