Ultimate Chocolate Cupcakes

There are some people that when they tell me something is good I just have to believe them.  When Anna from Cookie Madness says something is good I have to try it.  And she raved about these Ultimate Chocolate Cupcakes, so I had to make them.  Wow.  That's a lot of chocolate.  If you're a chocolate fan then these are for you.

I followed Anna's recipe here to make six cupcakes.

A few differences.  I meant to buy bread flour but never did, so I used regular flour.  We didn't have any bittersweet chocolate so I used half semi-sweet and half unsweetened chocolate.

I'm not sure if baking with coffee is a Mormon no-no, but I did it anyway.

The frosting was a new one for me.   Cooking the egg white, sugar and salt over the stove then adding the butter, vanilla and chocolate was pretty interesting.  My frosting was not fluffy so I put it in the freezer for 15 minutes and then mixed it again.  It fluffed right up!  It's so rich it gave me a headache right away-a typical sign that there's a lot of chocolate!
