Triple Chocolate Cupcakes

Today I'm back with cupcake #2!  (Cupcake #1 was Raspberry Lemonade)

These came out delicious, but not so rich they were overwhelming.

These were even easier than the raspberry lemonade cupcakes!  And just as delicious, but in a chocolatey way.  Again, I started with a cake mix - it saves time, and for me, they just come out better.

  • 1 box devil's food cake mix
  • Eggs (do what it says on the box)
  • Oil (do what it says on the box)
  • Water (do what it says on the box)
  • 1 c unsalted butter (2 sticks)
  • 3 c confectioners sugar
  • 2 T milk
  • 2 T unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Chocolate garnish (I used chocolate curls)
  • Icing bag
  • 1M star tip

  • Mix together the cake mix, eggs, oil, and water just like it says on the box.  
  • Fill cups and bake cupcakes exactly like it says on the box
  • Let them cool
  • Cream butter and milk
  • Add confectioners sugar and cocoa powder and whip until smooth
  • Add more sugar or milk if needed to get desired consistency
  • Using a large star tip on an icing bag, make swirls on top of cupcakes (I go from the outer edge to the center)
  • Top with a chocolate garnish (it's all about the presentation!)

This recipe made about 12 regular and 24 mini cupcakes, and took about an hour of time in total (but I had to wash lots of dishes in between).
