  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips bittersweet
  • 1 cup butter cut into pieces
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  Put muffin cups into your muffin pan.
  • Put your chocolate chips and butter over a double boiler.  What’s a double boiler, you ask?  Boil a small amount of water in a pot and place a glass bowl on top. Add your ingredients to the bowl.  This melts everything very gently so it doesn’t burn.  If you don’t have a good bowl for this, you can use the microwave… it might take a bit longer and you should watch to be sure it doesn’t burn. When everything is melted, set it aside to cool.
  • In a large bowl, cream the eggs (all of them – whole eggs plus the additional yolks) and the sugar.  Once it is thick and a pale yellow color, gently fold in your remaining ingredients – the cocoa powder and vanilla extract.
  • Gently spoon the batter into your muffin cups.  Remember, there is no leavening in these cupcakes so they won’t rise.  Fill those babies almost to the top!
  • Bake for 20 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes in the muffin pan.  You can then remove them from the pan and let them finish cooling on a rack.
  • Dust with powdered sugar before serving.  You could also add a frosting if you wish, but I don’t think it is necessary.  These cupcakes are incredibly moist and rich without anything else!  In fact, a frosting might make them too rich but that is a personal preference.


I have made these for Passover seders and as a decadent dessert at other times during the year.  They are amazing!  A chocolate lovers dream.
