Happy National Chocolate Cupcake Day! I absolutely love cupcakes. In fact, I've loved cupcakes ever since I can remember. They're cute and small and usually a perfect couple of bites topped with delicious frosting. What's not to love?

Even better than chocolate cupcakes, though, are these absolutely delicious chocolate cupcakes with a Latin twist. That's the way that I'm planning to celebrate today, anyway! And I'm betting that your whole family's going to love these amazing desserts, too!
