Hot Chocolate Cupcakes for Cold Winter's Day Feb. 10, 2010

Hot Chocolate Cupcakes for a Winter's Day 2010

Here on the east coast, we've been a little whipped around by huge snowstorms...the first one added 30" to my deck! That meant Hot Chocolate was high on my list of things to drink....or eat!

Today, we're welcoming (not) 10-20 more inches to what we already have out there...Oh, Boy. I can hardly wait to get out there and shovel (not).

Hope you enjoy them!

Here's the recipe:

Ingredients
Brooklyn Blackout Cupcakes by the Cake Mix Doctor

Filling and Frosting
1 (3 1/2 ounce) package cook and serve chocolate pudding mix
2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cupcakes
1 (18 1/4 ounce) box plain devil's food cake mix
3 tablespoons Dutch-processed cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup canola oil
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

I did not make the frosting...I just used CoolWhip for the topping to make them look more realistic.
