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.
