So on this blog, I try to share recipes made from scratch or close to scratch. However, box mix cakes are super easy and quick to use or doctor. With a little creativity, you can make a fabulous treat that doesn’t taste like something out of a box.
One such recipe has quickly become a favorite.
Chocolate Cupcake Gems
From the Kitchen of Keira Leinbach
1 box Devil’s Food Cake mix
1 box Yellow Butter Cake mix
Preheat oven to 350
Pour half of the contents of each cake mix into a large mixing bowl.
Follow the instructions on the back of the Butter cake mix box (egg amount, butter instead of oil, etc.). Thoroughly mix the batter. Using a mini greased muffin tin, spoon a little bit of batter (size of a quarter) then place a Hershey Kiss in each cup. Fill the cup to desired height (generally 2/3 full, we like our cupcakes a little bigger).
Bake for about 10 min and check to see is fully cooked by using a toothpick. remember that there is chocolate in the middle so only check the top part or side of one cupcake.
Once they are fully baked, let them cool and frost them.
We used the prepackaged chocolate fudge frosting, but there are so many yummy and simple frostings out there to make, experimenting could be fun.
I hope you enjoy this quick and easy cupcake recipe!!!
