    ChefCrittersMom's Note:

    From Prevention magazine, January 2012 issue via the Detroit Free Press. Chocolatey, tart and yummy. I used the best chocolate and cocoa powder possible, and would double the frosting (or even just 1 1/2 times) recipe (last three ingredients). I used an ice cream scoop to portion the batter and got 19 nice sized cupcakes.
