Chocolate Candy Cane Cupcakes

The only part better than decorating for the Holidays is baking for them! This was one of my favorites this year!


For the Cake:
1-1/4 pkg. (4 oz. each) Semi-Sweet Chocolate (5 oz.), divided
1 pkg.  (2-layer size) chocolate cake mix (I used Betty Crocker)
1 pkg.  (3.9 oz.) JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding1 cup Light Sour Cream
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup water
6 small candy canes, crushed, divided

For the Frosting:
2 pkgs Betty Crocker Vanilla Whipped frosting
sprinkle with candy crushed candy canes

Heat oven to 350°F

Chop 4 oz. chocolate; set aside. Beat next 6 ingredients with mixer until blended. Stir in chopped chocolate and 2 Tbsp. crushed candy. Spoon into 30 paper-lined muffin cups

Bake 20 to 23 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool cupcakes in pans 10 min.; remove to wire racks. Cool completely

Frost with Betty Crocker Vanilla Whipped Frosting. Sprinkle with remaining crushed candy cane pieces
