Chocolate cupcakes are an excellent, classic dessert. However, add in some cardamom and switch the chocolate over to a bittersweet (not semisweet) variety and you have an interesting and delicious treat. These bittersweet chocolate and cardamom cupcakes do contain both of the ingredients listed in their name. However, the trick to making them even tastier lies in the whipped chocolate ganache frosting. Layer it on top once these treats have baked and cooled.
