Happy Birthday to my little princess. When I asked her what she wanted for her birthday, all she said was chocolate cake. We usually make this as a bundt cake, but we had them as cupcakes at my surprise party this summer. This has been a favorite of our family for as long as we have been married.
Trust me, this is a cupcake you want to know. It is a chocolate chocolate chip cupcake.
1 box devil's food cake mix
1 box of large pudding (the cook and serve kind)
1 cup sour cream
1/2 c. oil
1/2 c. water
12 oz. chocolate chips
edited to add: the cream cheese frosting is simple: one brick of softened cream cheese, a splash of milk (probably 2T or so)....then just keep adding powdered sugar until stiff enough to pipe through a bag. I used probably 2 1/2 c. , but could have used more. Mine was a little soft. Mix until combined. To pipe it on the top, I put it in a ziplock bag. Snip off the corner. Pipe in concentric circles on the top. Enjoy!
