I found these cupcakes on Picky Palate and made them for a baby shower recently. They were an unbelievable hit! They were crazy easy, and I think they're worth preserving here for myself and sharing with all of our followers. (Not that they are too many of you yet, but still! Those who do follow deserve to taste these amazing little taste treats!) Head to her website, or see below, next time you need to impress in a hurry!
Chocolate Fudge Jr Mint Centered Cupcakes
1 box Pillsbury Devils Food Cake Mix
1/2 Cup vegetable oil
1/2 Cup water
1 small box instant chocolate pudding mix
1/2 Cup sour cream
1 Cup chocolate chips
3 4 oz boxes Jr Mints (look for them on sale, I found them for $1.00)
Favorite Vanilla or Cream Cheese Frosting
*Rachel thinks they'd be delicious with chocolate frosting too.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer, add the cake mix, eggs, oil, water, pudding mix, sour cream and chocolate chips. Mix on medium for 2 minutes or until well combined and somewhat thick. Scoop into 24 paper lined muffin cups. Press 3 JR mints into the center of each cupcake center. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes mostly clean from center. Let cool completely and frost with your favorite vanilla or cream cheese frosting.
Makes 24 cupcakes.
