Clara over at I Heart Food for Thought was our gracious host for this weeks Tuesday With Dorie (TWD) challenge and she choose Chocolate Chocolate Cupcakes!  I heart chocolate much, and I knew this would be a fun challenge for me.  We had a birthday celebration to go to over at Bryan’s house and I knew this would be the perfect gift for his girlfriend, Erin.  Who doesn’t love a gooey chocolate chocolate cupcake for their birthday?

The recipe was pretty simple, chocolate, flour, sugar, and buttermilk, basically.  In fact, it was so easy, that I kept reading through it thinking I had missed something.  As with all of Dorie’s recipes, that I have made so far, it was true to the serving amounts – twelve cute little cupcakes.

Kept going back and forth on whether I should fill them or not.  I really wanted too, but, I was not sure I would have time and I did not want to use store bought fluff.  Right before the final step, I whipped up a batch of Dorie’s Marshmallows flavored with cardamon to use as my fluff!  The finishing touch was a very deep bittersweet chocolate ganache topping with whimsical sprinkles! Very fun birthday celebration!

The end result:  very easy recipe, great flavor but a bit on the dry side.  I may try again before going back to my fall on cupcake recipe;  but, I will add more buttermilk and bake a short amount of time.

Be sure to pour yourself a big glass of milk and head over to Clara’s site for the recipe, and then check out the other TWD bakers!
