Father’s Day Chocolaty Super Dad Cupcakes Recipe

Super Dad Cupcakes

They say the fastest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Meaning, give him some delicious treats and he will love you for life. I don’t know who “they” are, but I do know it works with my father. I get the biggest welcoming smile when I bake cupcakes just for him. If it works with my father, I am sure it will work with others. So why not bake the father’s day gift this year and give all the dads what they really want..CUPCAKES.

Of course we can make it extra special by adding Super dad Cupcake toppers and wrappers. Let him know he is a SUPER DAD.
