Good morning! I made these last night for an order I had for three dozen cupcakes, any flavor I chose. They turned out incredibly as typically many recipes for chocolate anything still taste dry. I pushed a Whopper into each cupcake once it was cooled and used small muffin pans for the leftover batter to make testers for my office. I was able to get 18 healthy sized cupcakes and recommend this highly! Thank you!
