If you love chocolate & coffee, you will love these. Takes some time, but well worth the effort. I needed an adult dessert and made a double batch of these for my daughters baby shower thinking I would have plenty leftover for "me". BIG mistake. I went home with 4 leftover. Had to leave for an errand. Upon my return all 4 extra cupcakes had disappeared. Thanks to my son who stopped in to see how the shower went.
