MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 22, 2014

Hands down, the worst recipe I have ever made from Taste of Home. Tastes like fake chocolate air, and the sour cream/cool whip combo is not a good one. You just cannot get a decent chocolate taste by adding cocoa to angel food mix; you need to use actual chocolate mix. The only reason it gets 2 stars instead of one is because they turned out the way they were supposed to.

I baked these for my staff and for a baby shower, and they were a big hit both times. They're easy to make, and taste better the day after you bake them. Make sure to keep them refrigerated. I will definitely make them again.

quaintcook, follow the directions on the box to make the cake but add the cocoa. Then pour that batter into the cupcake tins as described to make the cupcakes. There are no directions on the cake box for cupcakes. Hope this helps.
