Ingredients

1
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ devil's food cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs as called for on cake mix box
24
milk chocolate candy drops or pieces, unwrapped
3
cups powdered sugar
1/3

1

1/2
cup dark chocolate chips, melted

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups. Make cake batter as directed on box. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups (about two-thirds full). Press 1 milk chocolate drop in center of each muffin cup.
  • 2 Bake and cool as directed on box for 24 cupcakes.
  • 3 In medium bowl, beat powdered sugar, butter, melted baking bar and vanilla with electric mixer on low speed until blended. Gradually beat in milk until smooth and creamy. Frost cupcakes; pipe year with melted dark chocolate onto each cupcake. Store loosely covered.

Expert Tips

If you have only one 12-cup muffin pan, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Then bake the rest of the batter in the cooled muffin pan, adding 1 or 2 minutes to the bake time.
