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

I didn't do all the chocolate curling stuff, I just grated some chocolate on. And I added cocoa powder to the frosting.

These were fantastic! I made them for a bridal shower and I got rave reviews. The only thing confusing about it is that you have 2 oz chocolate for the frosting and garnish and I think you ment 12. I had to go to the store for more chocolate but it was soooooo worth it. I also used the Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting on these.....Splendid!

I made this recipe for my daughters birthday and sent a double batch off to school with her. They were great...a very good brownie recipe disguised as a cupcake. Keeping in mind that I doubled the recipe...with the icing I used a whole pint of heavy cream instead of 6 tabsp. It made for a very creamy yet firm 'frosting' (ganache). Just like a truffle. Yummy!

These were awesome! My favorite chocolate cupcakes ever. They're chocolaty but light. I made a few changes which I was afraid might ruin this, but didn't. I used only 1/2 cup sugar and bittersweet instead of semi sweet chocolate. I used Kittencal's "Kittencal's Chocolate Frosting/Icing" to frost it. I don't believe there is such a thing as too much chocolate...lol. Thanks so much!

I made these for my mother-in-law for Mother's day and they were absolutley fabulous!!! I followed the recipe exactly (ok, I didn't make chocolate curls for the garnish, just chocolate shavings) and they were wonderful!! The texture was smooth and the icing wasn't too much- it complimented the cake just right. My mother-in-law loved them. My husband said they were smooth. My friend (who loves food, baking, and cooking in the kitchen) said that it was the best cupcake she has ever had. It costs a bit more then buying a box mix, but believe me, it is well worth the time and money. It's so good you don't even care about the calories. Much more then your average cupcake.

These are sooo very yummy! I don't usually like chocolate things, but decided to make these since the family does.. I am very glad I did. Thank you so much Recipe Nut for sharing this wonderful recipe. The cupcakes are so moist and yummy. I found the frosting perfectly balanced the cupcake. (ie. the sweetness).
