    Seems delicious. Can't wait to make it.
    Everyone loved these! They did take less time... about 15 min. A great addictive taste! A sure favorite!
    This is a neat twist to the traditional Black Bottom Cupcake. Pros-looks just like the picture, overall tastes pretty good, makes exactly 2.5 dz just like the recipe says. Cons-the chocolate part of the cupcake tastes just ok. Also, this dessert is really sweet with the added candy on top. My cupcakes were done in 18 mins, so watch the time!
