Give your regular chocolate cupcakes a major upgrade with these Blueberry Chocolate Chunk Cupcakes. 

Blueberry Chocolate Chunk Cupcakes

With all this snowy weather, I’ve been spending a lot of time in the kitchen. I love to bake and one of my all time favorite things to make are cupcakes. Pretty much everyone I know loves a good cupcake. They’re the perfect little indulgence when I’m craving something sweet. Being that they’re cupcakes and not an entire cake, I can easily box them up and give them to friends and family to enjoy with me so I don’t overindulge. Since I’m dreaming of summer and not this snow, I’m craving some delicious Jersey fresh blueberries and they were actually the inspiration behind these Blueberry Chocolate Chunk Cupcakes.

These cupcakes get a major upgrade with the addition of some yummy chocolate covered blueberries. Grab a bag of your favorites, chop them up and add them right into the cupcake batter mix. 

Growing up in New Jersey, blueberries are plentiful during the summer months and I was flooded with summer memories and all the yummy blueberry recipes I love to make. Since it’s still snowy and cold, I knew these would be perfect to tempt my taste buds and hold me over until we finally get some warm weather.

I went the semi-homemade route here and used one of my favorite box cakes mixes, a delicious homemade whipped cream that is super easy to make and some fresh blueberries along with the Dove® Fruit.
