Molten Lava Cupcakes

I LOVE Molten Lava Cake, but I don't have the little dishes to make them, so when I came across this recipe from Betty Crocker, I was excited that I already had everything I needed to make them. And I think they taste as good as any Molten Lava Cake I've ever had.

  • 3/4 Cup Whipping Cream (I used 1/2 cup)

  • 1 1/2 Cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (I used half a bag)

  • 1 box Devil's Food Cake Mix

  • 1 small box instant chocolate pudding mix

  • 1 1/4 Cup Water

  • 1/2 Cup Oil

  • 4 Eggs

  • Chocolate Frosting (I just used my own recipe)

In a small saucepan, heat whipping cream until really hot, but not boiling. Take off heat and immediately add chocolate chips. Stir until smooth. Refrigerate for 1 hour, stirring occasionally, until thick.

In large bowl, beat cake mix, pudding, water, oil and eggs. Place batter in cupcake papers, about 1/3 full. Spoon 1 Tbsp. cold chocolate mixture on top of batter. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes, then frost. Serve warm. (I have been microwaving mine for about 6 seconds to get them warm again.) YUM!
