Get those ovens set and those ingredients ready to prep for you celebration of National Chocolate Cupcake Day. Don't want to bake? That's fine, then you can just go out and buy chocolate cupcakes. But let's be honest, nothing tastes sweeter than the fruits of your labor. Your choice on how to acquire your cupcakes, but the bottom line is you have to eat at least enough to celebrate the holiday. How many does that entail? That is entirely up to you.

And as a special bonus, here is a recipe for a Chocolate Cupcake Cocktail:

Ingredients:
- 1 oz Whipped Cream Vodka
- 1 oz Amaretto
- 1 oz Chocolate Liqueur
- 1 oz Heaving Whipping Cream
-  Chocolate Syrup, Vanilla Frosting, Rainbow Sprinkles (Optional Garnishes)

How To:
Get a martini glass and apply the (optional) garnishes on the rim and put the newly decorated martini glass to the side...for now.
Mix all the other ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake it up well (you may want to listen to "Shake, Shake, Shake Senora" by Harry Belefonte for a steady shake rhythm)
Use some chocolate syrup and make some neat designs on the inside of the martini glass and then pour in the drink mix.
(not that this needs to be stated) Enjoy your drink.
