I made large cupcakes because that is the size of the pan I have to use in my Convection oven. I got 10 large cupcakes out of the recipe. Because my batches were larger I baked them for 25 minutes. These were big hit with the chocolate lovers here. These are sooo rich they don't need frosting. I had too much of the topping mixture and had to throw it away since I knew it couldn't be eaten as is since it had a raw egg in it. Made for Fall PAC 2012.
