MY REVIEW

Excellent chocolate cupcakes. There were light, fluffy and delicious. I even added mini chocolate chips to the batter to make a richer chocolate flavor. Everyone loved them. Definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing.

Very good recipe! I top them with a fluffy white frosting that contrasts with the dense, rich chocolate cake. Love them.

Reviewed Jun. 8, 2011

I thought they were excellent, very moist, I didn't make the ganache but did a simple frosting recipe, but next time will probably do the ganache to add to the flavor.

I made them in the mini cupcake

papers, I think they were the perfect size since they were wonderfully rich. I made the ganache frosting it was wonderful and I was surprised that it spread so far.
