Chocolate Overload Cupcakes

Receptet finns även på svenska. Sometimes, recipes need a fancy, long-winded title. Like my Chocolate Cheesecake with a Peanut Butter Cake Crust and Salted Peanut Dulce de Leche Topping. I know, the title is so long you forget what you're supposed to be doing before you've finished reading it. But all of those words (yes, all of them) were needed to sum up what the dessert was all about. That's not the case with these chocolate overload cupcakes. Nope. They need very few words to sum them up. They're chocolate. They're overloaded. And they're obviously cupcakes. Nothing more is needed.
