Cadbury Cupcakes

Yield: 24 cupcakes

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Ingredients:

Chocolate cupcakes:

  • 1 box (15 -ounce) devils food cake mix
  • 1 (3.4 -ounce) box chocolate pudding (dry)
  • 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup canola oil
  • 3/4 cup hot water
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 24 mini Cadbury caramel eggs
  • 4 large Cadbury caramel eggs

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 325°F.
In a large bowl combine the cake mix, chocolate pudding and chocolate chips. Stir until combined. Next mix in the eggs, canola oil and water. Finally mix in the sour cream. Then scoop the caramel out of the large Cadbury eggs and set aside. Chop up the chocolate from the eggs and stir into the batter.
Pour cake mix into the cupcake liners (about 3/4 the way full). Then place a mini Cadbury egg in the center of the cupcake.

Bake for 20-23 minutes or until they Spring back when touched. Do not over cook. You can also test with a tooth pick to make sure the centers are cooked all the way through.
Remove from oven and allow cupcakes to cool on a cooling rack.

Caramel frosting: 

  • 2 sticks salted butter, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 to 5 teaspoons of cream or milk
  • 3 Tablespoons of caramel

Instructions:

In a large mixing bowl whip the butter. Slowly add in 2 cups of powdered sugar. Mix until combined. Add the vanilla and 1 more cup of powdered sugar and continue mixing. At this point you may need to add a teaspoon or two of milk to thin the frosting down. Add in your last cup of powdered sugar and mix until combined. Stir in the caramel (from the Cadbury eggs). Add more or less milk depending on the consistency. You want the frosting to be thick, creamy and to be able to hold a point. I used a 2A frosting tip to frost these cupcakes. Top with a mini Cadbury egg if desired.

    I’ve been doing such a good job not crabbing fistfuls of cadbury eggs every time I walk past them in the grocery store. Until I saw this recipe. I am SO trying this one!

    Question – you scooped the caramel out and I thought it would then be used in the frosting, but it’s not in the ingredient list?

      It’s not in the ingredient list, because it’s listed in the cake mix portion, but it is in the instructions. :)
