These are really good and very simple to make. The only problem I had was removing them from the muffin tins. I liberally sprayed the tins but still had hard time keeping these together even when removed 2 hours later!! Next time (and there will be a next time) I'll try paper cups. Thank you Inez. Update: I did these again but this time I used paper cups and it worked like a charm. I also omitted the choco chips. Do use paper cups. I've frozen a bunch for emergencies!!

I made these for a bake sale and they were a hit! They came out very moist and delicious. I also did another version with strawberry batter and white chocolate chips. A hit with kids and adults alike.

Excellent easy recipe...the kids loved them! Alot less messy than the frosted ones for those toddlers to eat. Thanks for a great recipe that I'm sure to try again!

Very easy and VERY GOOD. Thank you, MizzNezz for a KEEPER. Next time, I'm going to fix these in mini-muffin tins. As you said, good picnic or carry-out fare.

I am looking for a recipe not a cake mix.

Very yummy. So easy to make, for a not-so-adept-at baking kind of gal! Had good reviews from those who tried at the bake sale! Thanks MizzNezz and also to those who suggested alternatives.

IMO its not a recipe if it includes using a box mix. Making cupcakes from scratch isn't that hard.

These puffed up beautifully but I am disappointed that they closed up completely and just look like unfrosted cup cakes. I know I had plenty of filling mixture for each. It all sunk inside. They are delicious though!!

A great recipe - very easy to make and tastes great! My boyfriend says these are the best cupcakes he's ever had. I sprinkled a little bit of cinnamon on top before baking for a little extra dash of spice. I used paper cups and had absolutely no problem sliding them out of the pan. Definitely a keeper!

such attractive little devils, i had extra batter left and so got suck with two plain chocolate cupcakes and they look boring in comparison. i love black bottom cupcakes, but i can never get the batter chocolaty enough, this worked great. oh and i did use mini chips instead of the regular kind. cute accesssories for cute cakes i suppose.
