Ingredients and Substitutions.

Chocolate I like to use chopped chocolate slabs in this recipe. You can also use chocolate chips instead. You can use unsweetened cocoa powder to add chocolate flavor.

Coffee Coffee enhances the flavor of the chocolate, but it is not too strong. You can substitute hot water if you wish, but it will affect the flavor.

Room temperature ingredients. Room temperature ingredients (butter, eggs, sour cream and cream cheese) will give the best results when baking these cupcakes.

How to freeze chocolate cupcakes

  • Place the cooled cupcakes in a labeled and dated freezer container or bag; they will keep for up to three months.
  • Thaw the cupcakes before using the frosting.
