I have never met a cupcake I didn't like. In fact, I pretty much love everything about cupcakes. Even more so when they are delicious chocolate cupcakes like these. Life Pro Tip: Any time you can have double the chocolate, you should always say yes and ask questions later. I don't think we could pack any more chocolate into these cupcakes because believe me, if there were a way, I would get more chocolate in there. I only try to use the best chocolate when I bake.
