    Found this one in a magazine and thought that it was an interesting "adult" recipe for cupcakes.

      These are pretty good cupcakes. The tip about filling the mini liners worked like a charm. We too thought the cocoa was a bit too much, but I really like the idea. We made a buttercream frosting instead of the cream cheese. I also like the idea of making them into a vanilla chai flavor. Made and Reviewed for Comfort Cafe - Tea for Two - Thanks! :)

      My friends now request me to make these for gatherings. They always turn out good, and look so pretty. We are trying to devise a plan to make vanilla chai cupcakes by replacing the cocoa with something else. These have definitely become a go-to recipe.

      We must have found this recipe in the same magazine! I clipped this years ago and finally decided to make it tonight. It turned out great so I came here to post it and now I don't have to! I don't have mini muffin tins so I made 1 dozen regular sized muffins.
