Double Chocolate Cupcakes with Mocha Icing

choc cupcakes

I spotted this recipe in the Winter 2008 Food & Drink and knew I’d better get this recipe down before I lost the magazine. These double chocolate cupcakes start with a chocolate cake mix but get dressed up from there. For a family-friendly icing, just leave out the liqueur.

They apparently freeze really well, even when iced. Simply freeze in a single layer on a baking sheet and then pop into resealable freezer bags. (Thinking that having a supply of these in the freezer will make them perfect for those times when nothing but chocolate will do :)
