These are the most mouth-watering cupcakes you will ever have. They are very dark chocolate and very moist and are filled with a whipped whoopie pie filling. They crack open when you fill them. These have been much loved in our family for years--loved more than Whoopie Pies. The batter also makes a wonderful 9x13 cake.
