The Cupcakes Schmupcakes Post

AKA: “The Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting” post.  Or the “I am a cheater post”.

Sometimes cheating can be good.

I know, I know usually nothing about cheating is good but let me explain.

I made these delicious cupcakes using a box of Duncan Heinz Devil’s Food Cake Mix.

Seriously.  I’m a cheater.

I could have used my Grandmother’s Chocolate Cake recipe to make these decadent cupcakes but I did not.  Or maybe I did use my Grandmother’s recipe and I just don’t want to share it. No, that’s not the case,  I’m a cheater not a liar.  I used a cake mix.

I did, however, make HOMEMADE frosting.  Homemade frosting can make any “cake mix” cupcake taste like heaven.  Especially when you make Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting.

Go ahead.  Try to tell me that you don’t want to buy yourself a box of Duncan Heinz cake mix and bake up some cupcakes right now. Go ahead. Try.

You know want cupcakes right now.

OK, not only am I a cheater today but apparently I’m a cupcake pusher too.

It’s alright, you can blame me for the cupcake envy you’re feeling right as well.

Just in case you want to cross over to the dark side with me, here is the recipe for…

Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting:

1/4 cup butter, softened
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 box confectioner’s sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1-2 Tbsp milk

Have a wonderful day!

Love your friend, Christie (the dirty rotten cheater)
