When I find a new candy such as the ones I found the other day, the picture that immediately comes to mind is topping cupcakes with them. So that’s exact what I did. Heading out to a ladies lunch tomorrow I figured they might e not these scrumptious little cupcakes! They are ready, covered and sitting in the fridge until time to leave tomorrow. Have found that placing cakes and cookies in freezer or fridge makes them much more moist until ready to use. So made them today and can’t wait to have one tomorrow.
1 Duncan Hines Devils Food cake mix
1 small package instant chocolate pudding
4 eggs at room temp
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/4 cup water
1-2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients except the chocolate chips. Beat for about 2 min and then stir In chocolate chips. Divide batter into cupcakes liners! Bake for about 15 min or until they test done. Cool and frost with your choice of frosting! Please don’t tell me (Cora) if you use canned frostings
Frosting that is easy and delicious
1 stick (8 tablespoons) softener butter
1/3 cup cocoa
1 tables white Karo
2 teas vanilla
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Milk, whipping cream or half & half to get to spreading consistency (about 1/4-1/3 cup)
Mix until no lumps remain. Frost cooled cupcakes. Top with candy ball or any candy you like!

Looks absolutely delish! Now just have to see if the candy comes in DARK chocolate. Please forgive me if you are a milk chocolate girl. Dark is my thing. Thanks also for the refrigerator hint. 🙂
