Chocolate Chip Cupcakes
Why I Love This Recipe
These were supposed to be Twighlight Chocolate CHERRY Chip cupcakes for a movie viewing party. I wanted the centers to ooze when you bite into them, like blood! Sadly, it didn't work at all, so I'm just posting the recipe for the cake itself! You can read all about my embarrassing cupcakeFAIL here: http://jojobean26.blogspot.com/2009/06/cupcake-fail.html
