photo by MarthaStewartWanabe
- Ready In:
- 1 (18 ounce) box chocolate cake mix (Pillsbury Moist Supreme Chocolate)
- 1 1⁄4 cups water
- 1⁄2 cup vegetable oil
- 3 eggs, large
- 1 (16 ounce) jar chocolate frosting (Pillsbury Creamy Supreme Chocolate Fudge)
- 1 (8 ounce) container chocolate Cool Whip (Cool Whip Season's Delight Chocolate)
- 1 quart strawberry, fanned (optional garnish)
- 1 pint raspberries (optional garnish)
- fresh mint leaves (optional garnish)
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a medium mixing bowl, stir together cake mix, water, oil and eggs. Beat until well combined.
- Using a regular-sized muffin pan (12 cups), place cupcake liners in each cup. Spoon batter neatly into each liner until 2/3 full.
- Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of one cupcake comes out clean. Remove cupcakes from the pan to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.
- While waiting for the cupcakes to cool, make the frosting. In a medium mixing bowl, place frosting and Cool Whip. Beat at medium-high speed until smooth and completely incorporated. Refrigerate until ready to frost cupcakes.
- With a apple corer or small serrated knife (or tool of your preference), gently hollow out the center of each cupcake (make a 1-inch diameter hole in each). Spoon or pipe frosting into the holes. Then frost the tops of each cupcake.
- Refrigerate until ready to serve.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
<p>My name is Rebecca, but my family and friends call me Becky. I am 33 years old and live in Rochester, New York, USA. I am a life-long resident of Western New York and can't say as I'd ever want to live anywhere else. I grew up on a small dairy farm in rural Western New York and love country living. Although my husband and I live in a suburb right now, we hope someday to move back to our roots and live a peaceful country life. <br /><br />My husband and I have been married for 10 years. We have a beautiful 5-year-old daughter and a 3-year-old son. I am amazed at how quickly our kids are growing and developing. I read a lot about and hold my own personal skepticism regarding the affects of additives such as preservatives, hormones, artificial colorings, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, allergens, etc. With the increasing number of children and adults with food allergies, I am suspicious that the last century of our nation's food industry improvements have contributed. I'm doing the best I can to protect my family from the risks, but it is difficult to avoid every additive. I have friends and family with food allergies and know how difficult it is to cope with food restrictions. I enjoy the challenge of cooking for those with food allergies but can't imagine making it an every-day affair.</p> 8727502"
