If you look you can see not all the butter was incorporated. Not sure if that mattered or not. Things were staring to smell so good in Stacie's Test Kitchen! Working in the smallest NYC apartment kitchen imaginable is not easy for but these cupcakes I was willing to pile things on top of refrigerators, my shoe boxes, bookshelves, etc.
Then the recipe called for adding both bags of chocolate to the mix. One is a bag of what appears to be cocoa and one is a bag of chocolate chips or chunks. As usual, the recipe warned against over-mixing, so I was careful.
Mmm...rich and chewy but not too fudge-y. Dark chocolate (with some chunks) plus a hint of sea salt (y'all know I love salt in my desserts) and the perfect toffee glaze just melting and oozing all over the top.
