Chocolate Velvet Cupcakes
These were the BEST chocolate cupcakes I have ever tasted, and everyone that I made them for agreed. There are 2 things I did differently because I did not have 2 ingredients. Instead of the sour cream, I used plain greek yogurt. When I made the frosting, I thought I had enough powdered sugar, but I ended up only having half of what I needed. SO, I mixed only half of the butter/cream cheese with powdered sugar, and the other half with 1/2-3/4 can of the chocolate frosting I had originally bought to go along with the cake mix. Those ended up being like a chocolate cream cheese cupcake and THOSE are the ones everyone liked the best. I am making more right now for Teacher/Nurses week. :D

In addition to my other review, I also cooked on 350 degrees NOT 400. Im sure I cooked a few minutes longer to make up for it. Mine were very much like a muffin, not a biscuit.

Mine were not dry at all. However, this is what I did differently: I added a pinch of baking powder (about 1/8 tsp) because I always add it to bisquick-made pancakes to make them fluffier. I also used an extra large egg because that's what I had. They were delicious!
