Chocoholic Chocolate Cupcakes

These are the perfect cupcake if you like chocolate, and I mean REALLY like chocolate! Rich, chocolatey and decadent – think Austrian chocolate Sacher-torte rather than super super sweet cupcakes. It’s a basic chocolate cupcake topped with a rich, smooth chocolate ganache – fab with a cup of coffee!
