Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes with Strawberry Icing

Dessert, Vegan

These Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes with Strawberry Icing are decadent and easy to make.  The double chocolate cupcake was delicious, and the strawberry icing was smooth and creamy.  They are topped with tiny, mini nondairy chocolate chips.

I love to buy my baking ingredients and fresh veggies from Whole Foods MarketWegmans and Sprouts Farmers Market.  Their selection is outstanding.  If you’d like to see some great kitchen essentials, check out the ones I use on my Shop Page.
