Why I Love This Recipe
This recipe is out of the William-Sonoma "Essentials of Baking" book. My father bought this book for me on a trip to Idaho. He always finds me some sort of cooking goody on trips. Anyway, I recently need to make a treat for my daughter's kindergarten class's Halloween party and decided to see how they would fair as cupcakes and they were so delicious I have made the twice in the last two weeks. Yeah, a lot of chocolate, but my oh my.
