Ooey Gooey Cupcakes of WONDER AKA Brownie Batter Chocolate Cupcakes

Wow. I'm a girl that isn't in love with all things chocolate. Sure, I love anything chocolate-dipped, but I don't go crazy for uber chocolate.

Let's have some cupcakes shall we?

These cupcakes are a little labor intensive, but extremely delicious. Like so good, I wanted to eat them all in one sitting, and the hubby made me take them to our home teachers so we would get rid of them. Sadface.

Check the inspiration here.

1/4 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup fat-free sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup milk
1 (18.25 oz) box devil’s food cake mix (I used the cheapo, Western Family brand)

Mix it all up (mix with mixer for about 2 min) {how many times can I use mixer in a sentence?}
Freeze in bowl overnight. (you can also be an overachiever and make small scoops and store onto baking sheet--assuming you have a big enough freezer for that)

1 (18.25 oz) box devil’s food cake mix (I used the cheapo, Western Family brand)
1 (3.9 oz) pkg  instant chocolate fudge pudding mix (I used the cheapo, Western Family brand)
1 cup sour cream
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
2 cups mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Line cupcake pans with liners. In large bowl, combine all ingredients (except for chocolate chips), mix for 2 min. Then mix in chocolate chips. Then drop batter into cupcake liners (fill about 2/3 full). Then plop in brownie batter from the bowl you froze overnight {try not to eat it all} 

Bake for 22-30 min. Let cool. 

I swear, it didn't need any frosting at all. 

In this recipe, there was a didn't tickle my fancy. It might tickle yours...
