Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.

Place 24 cupcake liners into muffin pans.

In a small sauce, bring the butter, water, and coco powder to a boil. Turn off and set aside.

Combine flour, sugar, and baking soda. Add eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, and coco mixture. Stir until well blended. Pour into cupcake liners.

Bake for 18–20 minutes or until done. They will be moist. Do not over cook. Cool completely.

Fudge frosting:

In a small saucepan, combine milk, coco powder, and butter. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and powdered sugar.

Drop a tablespoon full onto center of each cupcake. The frosting will thicken quickly, so do not make the frosting until ready to put on cupcakes.
