I have been wanting to make these cupcakes for a long time, but I didn’t really have a valid reason for these fancy things to hang around my house for just 2 people. A friend asked me to make cupcakes though for a party and that was my excuse to try these out! I’m so glad I did too because they are awesome! This is one of the best cake batters I have ever made. These were a huge success too! I made 60 of them and they were gobbled up in record time! The recipe I’m going to post will only deliver 24 cupcakes, but it was very easy to increase the recipe like I did.
You Will Need:
-1 package of devil’s food cake mix
-1 package (5.9oz) instant chocolate pudding mix
-1 cup sour cream
-1 cup vegetable oil
-2 teaspoons vanilla
-3 sticks unsalted butter
-pinch of salt
-1 Tablespoon clear vanilla
-4 cups powdered sugar
-6 Tablespoons heavy cream
-1 roll of chocolate chip cookie dough
-Preheat oven to 350.
-In a stand mixer bowl mix together cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, oil, eggs, and vanilla.
-Line muffin tins and fill about half full with batter.
-Roll a tiny ball of cookie dough and stick in the center of each cupcake. Cover with a little bit of batter.
-Bake for 20 minutes.
-Allow cupcakes to completely cool before icing.
-In a stand mixer bowl cream butter until fluffy
-Slowly add in powdered sugar until well blended.
-Add salt, vanilla, and heavy cream 1 Tablespoon at a time until frosting is the desired consistency.
-When cupcakes are completely cool, decorate with frosting.
-For the tiny cookie on top I just rolled small balls of cookie dough and baked for about 8 minutes.
