LOVED BY ALL

have been making this recipe for over a decade and it always gets rave reviews from children and adults alike. i've never frosted, as the cupcakes are moist and flavorful and the sprinkling of chocolate chips add richness and wonderful flavor. Highly recommended - so easy to make and yields a couple dozen. p.s. have made as mini cupcakes too.

Alternative

Try the mini morsels on cream cheese frosting. Absolutely heavenly! Not all of my children are fans of chocolate frosting so this allows everyone to "have (their) cupcake and eat it, too!"
