    These do not deserve the 3 star rating - I'm glad I made them anyway! Because some of the reviewers said the cupcakes didn't taste chocolaty enough, I added 1/3 cup of chocolate chips to the batter and stirred in just before pouring into the cupcake pan. Not sure if that really did the trick, but I thought these were little bites of heaven. Will make these again and I stand by this recipe!! Also, if you aren't concerned about following the calories CL posts, this batter makes 12 full cupcakes with a little leftover batter for the cook.

    These were great ate one or two since I don't really eat anything I bake ^^. People really enjoyed them and now I use these as the chocolate section of my Cupcakes that I deliver. I'm 15 and an amateur baker.

    These cupcakes were fantastic. Everyone loved them! I left out the coffee and topped with coconut. I will most certainly make these again!

    For a lower-calorie cupcake, these were great. I may have over baked mine since I only made 12 larger cupcakes instead of the recommended 16 so they were a tiny bit dry. As for the frosting, I highly recommend putting it in the refrigerator for 10 minutes before spreading on the cupcakes for a richer, thicker frosting.
