DALLAS (KDAF) — It’s pretty clear that the world of sweets will be dominating your wallet as Halloween will demand candy, Thanksgiving will demand pumpkin desserts, and Christmas, well, will demand it all.

A dessert that’s perfect for any occasion is the humble cupcake, it can take on any flavor and deliver deliciousness every time. However, we’re talking chocolate cupcakes in this story as Tuesday, October 18 is National Chocolate Cupcake Day!
