While tasty I was disappointed in these cupcakes. All the chocolate chips sank to the bottom. Maybe I did something wrong but don't think I'll make these again.

All the chips sunk to the bottom....may have been cook's error but wont waste the ingredients to try this recipe again. Also fill the cups as high as you can because the cupcakes won't rise some cases even shrunk back. I gave three stars because the taste is good.

Very easy. I just figured out it really makes a difference to the outcome of my baking to really cream the butter and sugar. Used the trick of flour in the chocolate chips and it worked. I really wanted my cupcakes to rise which is why these only got 4 stars. (I still haven't figured out how to do this) overall very lovely not too sweet but I didn't even need icing.
