Hot Chocolate Cupcakes, Feel the Heat

 Hot Chocolate Cupcakes!
Can you believe it?
And they taste just like you are drinking a cup of hot chocolate.
I don't think these will ever replace my soothing hot chocolate,
but for a special treat,
they are kinda kick'n.
 Have you ever used anything made of silicone?
These are pretty cool too.
A friend of mine gave me these,
and I don't think I will go back to using a cupcake pan
anytime soon.....
You bake your cupcakes in these beauties and they just
pop right out after they are done baking.
Let them cool first, of course.
And as you can see, I had a mishap in the kitchen.
Yes, it does happen.
And I am not one to keep secrets,
or make the picture really pretty.....
I screwed up, and I'm going to tell you I screwed up.
The recipe called for prepared chocolate pudding.
I know how to prepare pudding right?
But I think the recipe meant canned chocolate pudding.
I used instant.
I also used Almond Breeze for my milk amount.
Ha! As you can see, it didn't set up.
Yup, it was quite runny.
See it running off the top of the cupcakes?
And then my whipped cream started running
with the pudding.
Not running with the devil, running with the pudding.
(although I was angry enough, I could have been)
They still tasted great though.
Hot Chocolate Cupcakes

1 pkg. (about 16 oz.) pound cake mix, plus ingredients to prepare the mix
1 tsp. instant coffee granules 
4 containers (4 oz. each) prepared chocolate pudding (here is where I went wrong)
2 1/2 c. whipped topping, divided

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 15 muffin cups with baking spray. Prepare cake mix according to package directions, adding coffee granules with the cake mix. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling two-thirds full.
Bake 20 minutes or until toothpick checks clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes. Remove to wire rack; cool completely.
Combine chocolate pudding and 2 cups whipped topping in medium bowl until well blended. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Top each cupcake with chocolate pudding mixture and dollop of whipped cream. You can sprinkle with unsweetened cocoa powder.

  2. I have some silicone cupcake thingies too, but have never used them. I am not sure why. You have inspired to though. I am glad you share your mishaps, we all make them! At least they turned out wonderful!

  3. Oh my gosh YUM! This is such a great idea! I will have to add it to my list of things to make at Christmas. xx
