TWD:Chocolate Chocolate Cupcakes


This week's TWD recipe was chosen by Clara over at I Heart Food For Thought. Clara chose Dorie's chocolate chocolate cupcakes which were a perfect excuse for me to make Halloween-themed cuppies! I really wish I spent more time on these but I did so much baking and cooking this past week, as mentioned in the previous post, that I really just wanted this recipe to be as simple as possible. On Thursday I plan to remake these and get really creative with the decorating. Anyway, these cupcakes were OK. Unfortunately, I've had way better chocolate cupcakes than these. While I under baked them by  5 minutes, I still found them to be a tad bit dry and not as tasty as I would have preferred for your typical chocolate cupcake. I personally prefer a moister less dense cupcake. These were almost brownie-like. Therefore, on Thursday, I'm going to test out another chocolate cupcake in hopes of achieving just that--a moist chocolaty rich cuppie.  Stay tuned!

 
Boo!
