What's that you say? You don't want to end up eating a half dozen by the end of How I met your Mother?
Well, pshosh. Don't worry my friend, because I have just the cure for what ails you.
It's genius, really. A recipe for just two cupcakes? One for right now, and one for a half hour from now? Or, if you are feeling really sweet, then one for you, and one for your sweetheart.
I came across this recipe at One Bowl Vanilla Cupcakes for two, and it has been on my (long) list of things to try for quite some time now.
I was kinda craving chocolate tonight, though, so I added cocoa and chocolate chunks....oh, yeah.
