MSC: Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

So I'm a few days behind on posting this month's challenge, but here they are a few days late.  This month for our Martha Stewart's Cupcake Challenge, Rebecca of The Baking Sisters chose the Chocolate Chip Cupcakes from the Martha Stewart Cupcakes book.  Please forgive my grainy cell phone pictures! So I boxed up the cupcakes and delivered them cupid style on Valentine's Day.

I think my Dad was pretty excited!
I thought these cupcakes were fairly simple to make. I chose to make chocolate buttercream frosting instead of the dark chocolate frosting. No one in my family really likes dark chocolate, so I figured chocolate buttercream was the way to go.
I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day! Next month we are baking the Candied Hazelnut Cupcakes.
