    RecipeNut's Note:

    These cupcakes are a chocolate-lover's dream. Their fudgy flavor is complemented by a light, delicate texture, similar to that of a sponge cake. Topped with a melt-in-your-mouth frosting and chocolate curls, they're irresistible.

      These were so easy to make and so delicious. I used 1/2 cup sugar and no frosting. They were plenty sweet. So chocolatey and delicious! Thanks for posting this!

      I also did these with 1/2 cup of sugar and they were plenty sweet! The outside was lightly crunchy, the insides were soft and fluffy with a dense chocolate flavour. I will be making these again and again! THANK YOU
