Do you like frosting? I don’t. Most people do, but I generally scrape it off. These cupcakes are delicious without frosting. They’re moist, chocolately and sweet. The Ghirardelli chips are heavy & fall to the bottom of the cupcake, almost making a crust. Delicious. It’s actually the same recipe I used for the Chocolate Panda Cupcakes, but I added the chocolate chips.

I got my replacement Black Beauty in the mail yesterday (!!) but another beautiful thing about these cupcakes is you don’t even need a mixer, just a whisk.
