Chocolate-Chocolate Cupcakes is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've made several other recipes and this one is the best yet. I went ahead and melted all of the chocolate and added 1/4 cup of heavy cream to the chocolate/butter mixture. It helps the chocolate stay creamy and smooth. I also used milk instead of water and got a moist and chocolatey cupcake. I paired it with a vanilla almond buttercream and got rave reviews.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from made more than the stated 12 standard cupcakes. more like 24. dont know exactly because I was anticipating 12 and over filled most of them. i melted all 2 cups morsels and added it to the batter, rather than put it on top of the cake. they were quite dry, but all who ate them loved them. will try again with adjustments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used this to make Oreo cup cakes it was awesome. One Oreo biscuits on base then make mixture add broken Oreo biscuits instead of the choc chips (still use melted chocolate in batter), top with butter cream with crushed Oreos added awesome :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I substituted 3/4 cup skim milk and reduced the water to 3/4 cup and only used 1 cup of chocolate chips. They were moist, but I think they would be better using just milk. I had enough batter to make 30 cupcakes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I liked these cupcakes alot but like most other reviews they were a little dry and i know why. I LOVE the show cupcake wars and they said never to put water it will dry out so next time try milk (2%)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was my first time making cupcake for my 11 years old daughter. I cut the ingredients in to half. It came out great and beyond my expectation. She decorated them beautifully.
