Black Bottoms - yummy!
These cupcakes were super delicious, and the cream cheese, chocolate chip, chocolate cupcake mixture blended so well together! They were a little harder to make than normal cupcakes (especially since I did not have an electric handheld mixer to mix the cream cheese topping together with)! Other than that, I give these two thumbs up for taste, calorie count, and cuteness!
The recipe can be found here, on the Woman's Day website! The original recipe called for mini cupcakes, but I made normal size ones, so I only made 2.5 dozen cupcakes instead of 5 dozen, and all the nutritional information doubled for my recipe, so they were 150 calories per cupcake, but well worth it!
If I could make one suggestion, it would be to almost double the cream cheese topping portion of the recipe, because I did run out of it before I ran out of the chocolate cupcake mix, and I was not using as much as the recipe called for.
