Reviews for Double Chocolate Cupcakes
"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)."
