Uhhhhh, Miss Claire, these dreamy cupcakes can stand up to anything else on the market!!! Absolutely fabulous. I did not change the recipe at all, however, I didn't have the mini chips. I went to YOUR old HEB, but they didn't have them, so I used regular size chips. At the bottom of the bowl, I added about 1/4 cup more chips. Really and truly a wonderful dessert. Thanks.

Claire, these are delicious! I admit, I had some question about using apple cider vinegar in a chocolate cupcake recipe, but it does work! I made them exactly like the recipe called for and they were absolutely delicious, rich and flavorful! Thanks for sharing this one, Claire!

I just loved these! The cream cheese topping is delightful. I was generous in my dolloping so had to make another half batch of the cream cheese mix to finish them all. I don't usually eat chocolate things but these are really great and I'll be making them again.
