Cocoa Fudge Candy Bar Cupcakes

cocoa fudge candy bar cupcakesChocolate cake could quite possibly be my FAVORITE food in the whole world (and cupcakes count!) – at least in the top 5, along with foie gras.  When I was living in Utah, there was a blessed lady who brought me cupcakes for me and the kiddo.  These were seriously the BEST cupcakes that I have ever had – homemade and absolutely incredible! Pour a glass of milk and experience into Nirvana waves of bliss.

Baking is not my forte … savory is more my thing but I am a Taste Tester Extraordinaire.  Should you like to send me chocolate delights for review, please use the contact form, ahem.  The lovely lady who made the cupcakes and shared this recipe was named Joan and she lives in Provo, Utah – be aware that adjustments may be necessary for those who live at lower altitudes.

LOVE CHOCOLATE #HGEATS is coming on 2/6 but you can share Chocolate Nirvana anytime – Consider yourself invited!!
