Chocolate Cupcakes (Recipe by Ratna)

Mandy recommended using Lindt cocoa bar for ratna's cupcakes recipe. Went to NTUC at WS to search for it and i bought 2 different types, 85% & 70% cocoa bars. I did 2 batches using different cocoa bars and of course the aroma is very much stronger for 85% lah! It smells good during the process of baking and after baked, mil and ds gobbled few pcs at one go! It sure very tasty and I'm very sure that all chocolate lovers gonna love these! It's very chocolatey, very rich!

Thanks Ratna for the recipe and Mandy for recommending using Lindt!
