      My family and I loved it. I love spices, but wasn't sure about the Cardamom, so I used a little less, 1 1/2 TBS, I didn`t have valrhona so I replaced it with 1/3 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder. I didn´t make the frosting. It turned out great, I will upload the pics.
      Thanks for sharing.

      Loved these!!! Used regular baking chocolate. I love the spices in the frosting. So good. I dont know if I cooked it wrong or its right but my cupcakes came out very dense. More like a brownie. But so delicious. Goes excellent with a big class of milk.
