Since the transition to a slave-free lifestyle can be difficult, it's usually easier to swap out one product at a time. National Chocolate Cupcake Day is a good opportunity to start with a tasty one - chocolate! There's something about a chocolate cupcake that's delightfully decadent.

As a suggestion for getting started, here's a delicious mint chocolate cupcake recipe from Ten Thousand Villages.

Fun fact: The first known cupcake recipe dates back to 1796 when cook Amelia Simmons instructed that one of her cake recipes was "to be baked in small cups." Cupcakes have also been baked in coffee mugs, tea cups, and ramekins.

Bon Appetit!
