Chocolate Cupcakes (or Muffins) for Four

It's been a long time since I posted on this blog but THIS recipe is worth the wait.  OK it was for me, anyway!  I found this on a blog but modified it where it doesn't even look like the original.  Oh well. It's what I do.

If you sometimes want something chocolate and sweet but don't want to make an entire cake (you know you'll just eat the whole thing) then this is for you!

Chocolate Cupcakes/Muffins for Four

4 Tablespoons (1/4 Cup) Gluten Free Baking Mix (I used Bisquick Gluten Free but any other mix with baking powder and salt in it will work)
4 Tablespoons of sugar
2 Tablespoons of Cocoa Powder (Unsweetened)
1 egg
3 Tablespoons of milk
2 Tablespoons of Butter, melted
1 Teaspoon Vanilla

Mix all ingredients together and pour into 4 muffin cups sprayed with cooking spray. 

Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes.

Awesome add-ins would be mini chocolate chips, espresso powder, coconut or other chopped nuts.

I've made these twice so far and I hope I run out of GF Bisquick so I STOP myself from making more!  Since I like my chocolate less sweet I use only 3 Tablespoons of sugar, but I know most people would prefer the 4. 

I have never made them with gluten flour but I would imagine you could use flour, about 1/2 Teaspoon baking powder and a pinch of salt in place of the GF baking mix.
