Total Time30 mins
- 15 ounce box devil's food cake mix
- 5.9 ounce box instant chocolate pudding (dry)
- 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips
- 4 eggs
- 3/4 cup canola oil
- 3/4 cup warm water
- 8 ounces sour cream
Preheat oven to 325°. Line cupcake liners in 2 muffin pans.
In a large bowl, combine the cake mix and chocolate pudding. Add the chocolate chips in now (this will prevent them from sinking) and stir until combined.
Next mix in the eggs, canola oil and water. Then stir in the sour cream.
Pour cupcake mixture into the liners (about 3/4 the way full). Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes clean. Do not overcook.
Remove from oven and allow chocolate cupcakes to cool on a cooling rack. Wait to frost until cooled completely.
