Rich chocolate cupcakes. Found this online on someone's blog. It might have come from a cookbook originally, but I don't know which one. My cupcakes cooked in 22 minutes.

Good Cupcake I love buttermilk in cooking, though I used sour milk as did not have any. If you have to make mini cupcakes you will not have any paper cups so might stick because of chocolate chips. everything came out but chocolate chips that sank to bottom. though not fault of recipe. I don't know if it is because i only let cool 5+ minutes minutes before took out of pan
