Truffle Chocolate Cupcakes


  • 1½ cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 package (18¼ ounces) devil’s food cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • ¾ cup canola oil
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped (optional)


  1. In a small saucepan, melt the chocolate, milk and butter over low heat; stir until blended. Remove from the heat. Stir in vanilla. Transfer to a small bowl; cover and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Roll into 24 1-inch balls; chill 1 hour longer.

  1. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs, sour cream, oil, water and vanilla; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes.

  2. Fill paper-lined muffin cups one-third full. Drop a truffle into the center of each cupcake. Top with remaining batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 17–22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  3. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Top with whipped cream if desired.
