Reviews for Chocolate Toffee Cupcakes
"we love these!"
"These are good but the chocolate flavour is fairly strong. I used less margarine and more milk in the frosting. The toffee bits in them are delicious!"
"So far I only tried the frosting part of this recipe and I substituted buttermilk for the milk. We all agreed that the frosting was wonderful. (I used Buttermilk Chocolate Cupcakes recipe from this site.)"
"My family loved these cupcakes, however I had a lot of icing left over. I would probably not make as much the next time. I froze the icing to use on my next batch."
"The Chocolate Toffee Cupcakes sound yummy! Will bake them for a gathering at church.toni"
