Make It
Step 1
Preheat oven to 350º F. Paper-line 14 muffin cups.
Step 2
Microwave 2/3 cup morsels in small, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 45 seconds; STIR. If pieces retain some of their original shape, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until melted. Cool to room temperature.
Step 3
Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Combine buttermilk and water in small glass measure. Beat brown sugar, oil, eggs and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract in large mixer bowl on high for 2 minutes. Beat in melted chocolate. Beat flour mixture into creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk mixture. Spoon into prepared muffin cups, filling 3/4 full.
Step 4
Bake for 18 to 23 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes; remove to wire rack to cool completely.
Step 5
Microwave remaining 2/3 cup morsels in small, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 45 seconds; STIR. If pieces retain some of their original shape, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until melted. Cool to room temperature.
Step 6
Beat butter and remaining 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract in medium mixer bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in melted chocolate until blended, scraping occasionally. Gradually beat in powdered sugar until light and fluffy. If icing is too thick, add milk, 1 teaspoon at at a time, to desired consistency. Makes 1 1/2 cups.
Step 7
Frost cupcakes with frosting.
