Halloween is quickly approaching and I've got just the thing to add to your Halloween baking list - Devils Food Cupcakes!!!
These cupcakes are soooo good. Forget the candy bars - I'll take moist chocolate cake with fudgy chocolate frosting and chocolate shavings for my treat.
There is no trick to making these cupcakes. Follow my simple step by step instructions and you will be sinking your teeth into one of these sinfully good cupcakes in no time.
