Today's cupcake: Junior Mint Stuffed Cupcakes.
Sticking with the theme of things "stuffed" I chose today's cupcake. I found this recipe from this fellow blogger who was the original creator of the Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies. Check her out-all the recipes found on her site are her own creations and boy do they look fabulous!
1 box of Pillsbury Devils Food cake mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil ( I always substitute with apple sauce- no taste difference, just healthier)
1/2 cup water
1 small box of instant chocolate pudding mix
1/2 cup of sour cream (don't have sour cream? use Greek yogurt)
1 cup chocolate chips
3, 4 oz. boxes of Junior Mints
Your favorite vanilla or cream cheese frosting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl add the cake mix, oil/apple sauce, eggs, water, pudding mix, sour cream/Greek yogurt, and chocolate chips.
Mix for 2 min. (you are looking for everything to be bound together and the batter quite thick)
Scoop into a lined muffin pan (yield 24)
Add 3 Junior Mints into the center of eat cupcake
Bake for 22-25 min. or until a toothpick comes out pretty clean in the center.
Let cool completely
Frost with your choice of frosting.
