Lady Rose's Best Tasting Chocolate Cupcakes

Rose Mary Mogan


This recipe is a slight variation from my Yellow cupcake recipe, and they are very moist and tasty ,and so full of flavor.The addition of coffee flavoring, instant coffee granules, Instant chocolate pudding and the chocolate chip liqueur makes all the difference in the world as far as the outcome of taste is concerned. You can add a butter cream frosting or chocolate, what ever you prefer, or mix them up, your guest will not be disappointed one bit. You will love savoring the flavor and moist goodness of these cupcakes. You will probably get requests for the recipe.
