Homemade Hostesss Cupcakes

These were so much fun to make and everyone raved about them.  I am not a fan of chocolate cake but I actually did enjoy these.  Such an easy show off recipe.
Ingredients for Cake:
  • 1 box devils food cake
  • Water, eggs, and oil as directed on box
  • 1 can easy Pillsbury easy frost or vanilla whipped frosting if you have a decorating pen kit.
Ingredients for frosting:
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup semi-sweetened chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
Directions: Bake cake as directed and cool.  Using the Pillsbury easy frost squirt frosting into the middle of the cupcake until it starts to crack a little at the top.  See picture below.  Add chocolate chips to a medium bowl then bring heavy cream to a soft boil in a sauce pan.  Once heated add to chocolate chips and stir until melted then add corn syrup.   Once cupcakes are cooled completely dip the tops into the frosting.  Frosting will harden as it sits.
Cookers Note:  I used a decorating icing tube to make a hostess cupcake design on some of mine and I also just made a little circle design on some.
