Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Recipe!!! Many thanks, it was so accurate and tasty! Right texture, moist and flavor. Used long espresso shot instead instant coffee and felt it enriched it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These are great in flavor but I felt that the "mocha" was a little lacking. 6oz of chocolate is a lot, so to me it tastes more like a chocolate cupcake than mocha, however, it was great in taste and fluffy. I paired it with both the Wilton mocha buttercream recipe (my new fave) and the chocolate buttercream.
