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!

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!
