Triple Chocolate Snowflake Cupcakes with Chocolate Glaze

Cupcakes:
1 box devil’s food cake mix
1 (4 oz) box instant chocolate pudding mix
1 C sour cream
1 C vegetable oil
4 eggs – lightly beaten
2 tsp vanilla
1 or 2 C mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350*. Line 2 muffin tins with paper or foil cupcake liners. (This recipe will make about 24 cupcakes.)

Beat the cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, oil, eggs, and vanilla on medium speed for about 2 minutes, or until well combined. Then fold in the mini chocolate chips.

Fill the muffin wells with batter about 1/2 to 2/3 full. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until the top of the cupcakes spring back when softly touched. Allow them to cool for about 10 minutes before you take them out of the muffin tins. Then place them on a cooling rack and let them cool completely before dipping them in the glaze.

Glaze:
1 1/2 C powdered sugar
3 T cocoa powder
3 T milk
1/2 t vanilla
pinch of salt

Whisk all the ingredients together until the mixture is smooth. If it seems too thick, add more milk just 1 teaspoon at a time.

Dip the tops of the cooled cupcakes in the chocolate glaze and let the excess drip off. The glaze will harden in about 5 or 10 minutes.

For the snowflakes, melt a bag of white candy melts in a microwave safe bowl and then poor into a ziploc bag. Cut a tiny hole in the corner and go to town drawing snowflakes on top of the cupcakes… or any other design you want! These ones have little pearl sprinkles placed on the ends of each snowflake “spoke”.

Enjoy!

    Sounds delicious and looks festive! I will try to make this a little healthier by using 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 Greek yogurt. I will substitute GF cake mix. Thank you for the great idea.
