My work roomies had been begging for a chocolate cake pretty much since the beginning of
time March. E has mentioned about once a month that he wished he had a chocolate cupcake. One evening I apparently fell and hit my head because I gave in and made <my soon-to-be-famous> Triple Chocolate Cupcakes. Needless to say, they were a hit. I'm almost ashamed to say how I made them for fear of being knocked down of the pedestal these chocolate lover's put me on.........
I used Mrs. Field's Chocolate Cupcake Mix, added in Hershey's Dark Chocolate Chips after the batter was whipped and right before poring into the cupcake foils, then spread on Duncan Hines Milk Chocolate icing. No matter how simple -- YUMMMM. I think the Dark Chocolate Chips really added the right touch! ;-)
(I wanted to try it heated because I knew it would somewhat melt the chips in the cupcake. Soooo I used 10 seconds I think ... there was icing everywhere! Then, I had a friend from work say she heated it too, but for about a minute, and she had chocolate everywhere! Lesson learned-- do less than 10 seconds! Maybe 5?)
