The Sims 4 Super Chocolate Tummers Bomb Cupcakes

(Makes 12 cupcakes)

Dry Ingredients:

·       1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

·       1/4 teaspoon baking soda

·       2 teaspoons baking powder

·       1 cup cocoa powder (I used Hershey’s Special Dark for a super chocolatey cupcake!)

·       1 pinch of salt (about 1/8 teaspoon)

Wet Ingredients:

·       3 Tablespoons oil (I used canola oil)

·       1 1/4 cups white sugar

·       2 eggs

·       1 teaspoon vanilla extract

·       1 cup milk (any kind of milk is fine, I used 1%, but you could also use UNSWEETENED soy milk or almond milk)

·       1/2 cup chocolate chips


·       Preheat oven to 350°F.

·       Combine all dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl.

·       In a separate bowl combine all wet ingredients and mix well.

·       Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and use a hand mixer until thoroughly combined and no lumps remain.

·       Slowly stir in the 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (do not use the hand mixer for this).

·       Pour mixture into a paper cupcake liner lined baking sheet.

·       Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, using a toothpick to check for doneness, if the toothpick comes out of the cupcake clean then the cupcakes are done, if not put them back in for an additional 5 minutes.

·       Once done, let cupcakes cool completely (at least 1 hour).

Recipe for the Nutella Frosting


·       1 cup (2 sticks) of softened unsalted butter

·       1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

·       3/4 cups Nutella


·       Add all ingredients to a hand or stand mixer and mix (starting at the slowest speed and gradually increasing to about speed 5 once the sugar has been combined).

·       Mix until everything is thoroughly combined.

Once the frosting is thoroughly mixed, spread it onto the cooled cupcakes and top with chocolate chips (optional).


Dessert is definitely a great way to bring The Sims 4 out of your computer and into your kitchen for the holiday season. We hope you get a chance try ImaginingMystic’s recipe and enjoy it as much as we do.
