Who doesn’t love strawberries, chocolate and cupcakes, me myself I cannot resist a good dessert that is why I decided to make this easy Strawberry Chocolate Cupcakes, small treats for my husband’s peers at his office. Friendship is very important and recognizing those special co-workers that spend most of your day with you I thought would be a nice gesture so my husband took with him today a tray full of this delicious Strawberry Chocolate Cupcakes and seems everyone loved since that tray came back empty.

1.- Heat the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, place the cupcake liners in the baking pan.

2.- In a mixing bowl add the cake mix, the eggs, the milk, the vegetable oil, and the strawberry jam. Beat until getting a smooth and uniform batter.

3.- With a spoon pour the batter into the cupcake liners and bake the cupcakes for 20-30 minutes until golden brown. Take them out of the oven and let them rest for few minutes to allow for them to get cold. When at room temperature cover with the pink frosting.

4.- Melt the chocolate pieces in the microwave for 30 seconds or more, just be careful on not burning the chocolate. Stir with a spoon and chocolate will be ready to use.

5.- Clean the strawberries and cover with the melted chocolate and place a strawberry on top of each cupcake. Sprinkle with the sugar decorations. See above video for details.
