Based on a recipe from Cook’s Country magazine, February/March 2006. Makes 24 cupcakes, although it can be easily halved. The editors say, “If you don’t have bar or block chocolate on hand, use semisweet chips in the cake and frosting.” I frost these using recipe #414787 or recipe #414801. Did you know that unfrosted cupcakes can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days? They may also be individually wrapped in plastic and frozen in a zipper-lock bag for up to 1 month.
