Lindt Truffle Chocolate Cupcakes

Happy Valentine's Day!!! I made these cupcakes last night and they were a huge hit. One of my absolute favorite treats is Lindt Lindor Truffles. When I saw this recipe I knew I had to make these cupcakes. They were so delicious!!! I didn't have quite enough truffles for the whole batch so I experimented and used some other chocolates I had. I recently discovered my new favorite chocolate. It's Hershey's Bliss milk chocolate with a raspberry meltaway center. I can't get enough of those. They're so addicting. I decided to use them for some of the cupcakes. Oh my goodness! It was so good. I almost think I like that better. But either way it was so delicious!
