Chocolate Cupcakes

I made these cupcakes for my sister’s birthday.  She said they were awesome and I must agree.  She said they were even better than the cupcakes made with eggs and oil.  They were the best chocolate cupcakes I have ever eaten,  yummy!

*Note: I have made edits to the original recipe posted.  This version tastes identical and with less sugars.
