Top Review by Marie Nixon

These are OMG delicious! I actually got 16 very nice sized cupcakes out of the recipe. I frosted them with recipe #89207, done with the medium chocolate version. I used smooth peanut butter as that is what I had on hand. Have a glass of cold milk ready when you eat these.
