It's fast and simple, but needs a slight adjustment - use less water and reduce baking soda to 1 teaspoon.
Thanks so much for the advice, I have tried hershey's chocolate recipe but I did not have much luck.I really need to do these cupcakes tonight but I don't have any cocoa powder, I only have some Bakers semi sweet chocolate on hand, that's my reason for wanting to change the recipe around
