I tried this recipe and would not make this one again. There are so many other better chocolate cake cupcake recipes than this one. I followed the recipe for the chocolate cupcakes and tasted it before I filled my muffin tins - it was off and did not taste very good. I added more cocoa powder, water and butter. That helped the taste. I put the cream cheese and powdered sugar on the top as the recipe called. The cupcakes went well after baking. This was easy to make but would most definitely would not make it again.

These were amazing, I made these with the kids that I watch and with my kids as well and they thought they were the coolest thing to make and then they all sat in front of the oven and watched the cream cheese disappear. I used tofutti better than cream cheese due to dairy allergies and it did just fine. Thanks for posting!

These were good, but not as good as I had hoped. The cupcake itself was relatively dense, even though they were nice and tall and very pretty to look at. I would have preferred a lighter, more moist texture in the cupcake and would have liked more intense chocolate flavor as well. The filling was good and definitely makes this visually appealing and a nice surprise for those who aren't expecting it. This is not an overly sweet cupcake, which we liked, but it was lacking in flavor otherwise. Maybe blending in and egg and adding more cocoa powder would help, though I'm not sure.
