Reviews for Double Chocolate Cupcakes
"I doubled this recipe and used 3 whole eggs. I also doubled the amount of cocoa (to 1/2 cup per recipe) and the chocolate chips (to 1/2 cup per recipe). I replaced the water with milk. And I used a buttercream frosting to fill them instead of frosting them. The double recipe made 40 cupcakes. Yum!"
"These are the best thing when I need a chocolate fix. Am working on another batch, everybody at work gobbled them up."
"Used regular size dark chocolate chips. Sprinkled cooled cupcakes with powdered sugar. Very good!"
"A tiny bit dry"
"I made these with gluten free flour, they turned out great!! I used 1/2 cup cocoa powder and reduced the flour to 1 1/3 cups. I mixed 1/2 cup of chips with flour & cocoa so they didn't fall to bottom. It made 6 JUMBO muffins. YUMMY!!!"
"Great light treat for when you're having a chocolate craving. I made exactly as written and they came out fine but my batter only made 12 as well (not 14)."
"Looked picture perfect out of the oven! Added an extra 1/2 cup of the miniature chocolate chips!"
"This is a good recipe for when you're craving chocolate but don't want a whole lot of calories."
"These were great, however I did make a few changes. I used 2% milk in place of the buttermilk. I also mixed the chocolate chips into the batter and had no problem with them sticking to the pan - also sprinkled chocolate chips on top. The biggest change I made was I added a bit more flour, and poured the mixture into jumbo muffin pans. Tasted just like a jumbo muffin without all the fat and calories! Recipe made 6. Will absolutely make again, my hubby had no clue that they were a healthier version of a family favorite!"
"These came out great and they are a pefect lower fat chocolate dessert. I didn't have any mini chips on hand, so I used larger sized chips and chopped them up a bit. Delicious!"
"Very yummy:) I might try sprinkling chips on the top next time I make this. I put more mini chips in mine as well:)"
"This is a wonderful recipes! Whenever I get a craving for chocolate I go to this recipe! Very easy to make. I also mix my chocolate chips with the flour mixture and have no trouble with the chip sticking to the bottom of my pan! My husband even loves these!!"
"I mixed the choc chips in along with the flour and cocoa and they did not sink. They were YUMMMmmmy. Defnintely making these again."
"Fabulous cupcakes. Had the same problem as some others, though, with the chocolate chips falling to the bottom. They stuck to the pan and made a horrible mess. Wonder what would happen if I melted the chips first?"
"These were absolutely delicious! Everyone in the family agreed, and couldn't believe they're light. Very easy to make, too. Just a note: my batter made 12 average-sized cupcakes (not 14, as the recipe says)."
"they look delicous"
"I thought they were a bit dry and could have used more chocolate chips."
"Try putting a scant tablespoon of flour into a plastic bag, add choc chips and SHAKE! Coating the chips with flour will keep them from falling to the bottom of the batter."
"I made the cupcakes, and we enjoyed them. they were very delicious!M from IA"
"Very easy recipe. It was great with the cupcakes cut in half horizonallyand then filled with Fat-Free Coolwhip and fresh strawberries. Verygood."
"These cupcakes are delicious, easy to make, and guilt-free. The only problem I had was the chocolate chips sank to the bottom and stuck to the pan. Other than that, they were a hit with my family."
"These cupcakes are wonderful!!! The first evening while they were still warm I sprinkled some confectionery sugar on them - they do not need frosting. I cut them in half and put a scoop of vanilla ice cream on them and a bit of chocolate syrup (like a brownie sundae). Heavenly!! Thank you for this recipe - I will make these many times in the future. Flora Haff-Cranmer, Bath, NY"
"My whole family enjoys these cupcakes. Sometimes they are not too fussy for healtier sweets. But these got a thumbs up."
"Made these yesterday and my husband and son loved them. My husband ALWAYS says he can tell when I make "healthier" meals and desserts. No complaints this time! Very good chocolate fix in my opinion."
"These were delicious! I actually made them into mini-muffins and added a drizzle made from orange juice, powdered sugar, and orange extract."
"These were really good. Must admit, made 12 cupcakes, not 14. Used a substitution for buttermilk (milk+cream of tartar). Will definitely make them again. Sort of like brownies. Yummy!!jackie - illinois"
