Chocolate Fudge Jr Mint Centered Cupcakes

I saw these on Picky-Palate and thought they looked yummy. I made them for our enrichment night and everyone seemed to like them. I liked them this way but I think they would also be nice for a party if you made them in the smaller cupcake tins.

Chocolate Fudge Jr Mint Centered Cupcakes

1 box Pillsbury Devils Food Cake Mix

4 eggs

1/2 Cup vegetable oil

1/2 Cup water

1 small box instant chocolate pudding mix

1/2 Cup sour cream

1 Cup chocolate chips

12 oz box Jr Mints

Favorite Vanilla or Cream Cheese Frosting

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer, add the cake mix, eggs, oil, water, pudding mix, sour cream and chocolate chips. Mix on medium for 2 minutes or until well combined and somewhat thick. Scoop into 24 paper lined muffin cups. Press 3 JR mints into the center of each cupcake center. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until toothpick comes mostly clean from center. Let cool completely and frost with your favorite vanilla or cream cheese frosting.

  1. Amanda said that these got rave reviews at your enrichment meeting the other night. Junior Mints are one of my favorite candies. I'm gonna have to give these a try!

  2. I saw these on her blog and really wanted to try them. I'll have to make them soon!
