    So good!

    Ameera T from OAKLAND, CA

    This recipe is easy to follow and they are delicious! I've changed it up a couple of times like instead of using chocolate pudding I used vanilla, and I couldn't find the right type of morsels, so I just used the white chocolate, but these cupcakes are amazingly delicious!

    The best cupcakes

    LYNN BORG from Encinitas, CA

    My granddaughter (Elise) and I made these for her birthday and they are wonderful. Easy to make even for a 9 year old! We only had mini morsels but they worked perfectly. We will never make a regular boxed cupcake again!

    Great cupcakes

    Phoelisa McGuire from JOHNSTON, IA

    My 3 kids enjoyed making these with me after school today. They eagerly ate their dinner since they knew what dessert would be - the cupcakes. They were chocolatey and delicious.

    kids love them!

    Suzanne Geiger from Zionsville, PA

    I actually make this recipe into a cake instead of cupcakes. The baking time was the only adjustment, about 8 minutes longer. My kids loved it!

  •  Star(s)

    Good

    Jennifer Duncan from BRIGHTON, MI

    My family really liked these. I thought they would be a little denser but I did like the taste. The best part was how easy they were to make. I would make them again.

    BETTY RUNKLE from READING, PA

    This is a great recipe. I was in a hurry and did not have the time to make cupcakes, so I made it into a cake. Took it to a party and there was none left. It was moist and the flavor was wonderful. It's a keeper.

    Yummy & easy

    Frances Metcalf from SPRINGFIELD, IL

    I was on dessert detail for our church's weekly family night and made these cupcakes. Not a one left! One little boy had two on his plate, I'm not sure whether he was planning to share or devour both himself. Thanks for a winner.

    Best Ever!!

    cut the calories

    Paige Ferguson from SPRINGFIELD, MO

    to cut the calories and enjoy more than one cupcake at a time; use olive oil, yogurt instead of sour cream, 5 egg whites instead of 4 eggs. It still tastes delicious and it's always better than just a box cake.

  •  Star(s)

    Vicki DeSormier from SANFORD, FL

    I really like these, but (being a chocoholic) I use chocolate icing on them

    triple Treat chocolate cupcakes

    Marilyn Stueven from GRAND ISLAND, NE

    I used this recipe for my grandson's 11th birthday using 3 8-inch pans. I filled in between layers with whipped topping and frosting was a fluffy homemade frosting. I decorated the cake with the white and chocolate morsels and put chocolate sprinkles on the sides and top also. a very yummy cake. my grandson made the recipe first using the cupcakes. he wanted the cake for his b-day but did not have time to bake all the cupcakes and Thanksgiving dinner too so made the 3 layer one.

    I was looking for a yellow cake recipe for my son's birthday. I made this recipe with a yellow cake mix, french vanilla pudding, yogurt (because I had no sour cream and olive oil ( I use olive oil in everything). I also baked it in a bundt pan for 45 minutes. Great recipe with many variations. Yummo
