Hershey's "Perfectly Chocolate" Chocolate Cake - Recipe

This recipe makes some of the best chocolate cupcakes you will ever have.
Spencer whipped them up yesterday (with a tiny bit of help) and they cured my chocolate craving.
These cupcakes were moist, the right amount of chocolate, not overly sweet and simply perfect.
Spencer does not like items that are really sweet but he absolutely went wild over these!

The recipe came from Hershey's Kitchen.com, which is packed with wonderful recipes that will have you baking up a storm.

I have to admit that we did not make our own frosting but opted to use Betty Crocker Triple Chocolate Fudge Chip.
