Recipe by Caryn

A simple yet interesting cupcake for chocolate lovers.

Top Review by vrvrvr

The recipe amounts were off: the batter will fill 12 muffin cups, not 16. The bottom half bakes up sort of like a cookie -- not like a cupcake. The topping is a mystery: I didn't understand what brown sugar and egg are doing in it? The chocolate chips melt on top of the bottom part--that's all that happens with the topping (that is supposed to be whipped for 5 minutes!). I spread the melted chips while hot with a knife to make a sort of "frosting" (which it's not.) These might be made in cupcake pans but they're not cupcakes, and now I've got a terrifically messy pan to clean from the gooed-up topping running all over it. Sorry to sound grumpy; these were a big disappointment.
