Wow, looks like “chocolatiest” is actually a word! Lots of good stuff from Pink Wings here. Chocolate cake, some Nutella, some crushed Oreos, and chocolatey buttercream frosting. ‘Nuff said.
Makes about 20 cupcakes
Chocolate cake mix
1/4 c sweetened condensed milk
1/4 c light sour cream
3/4 c heavy cream or half & half
1/2 c butter, melted
crushed Oreos (about 4)
chocolate almonds for garnish
1/2 c butter, softened
1/4 c cocoa powder, sifted
2.5 c powdered sugar, sifted
1/2 tsp vanilla
2-3 Tbsp milk
Preheat oven to 350F and prep cupcake cups or liners.
Prepare the cake mix according to directions, replacing the water with the condensed milk & cream, and the oil with melted butter. If using baking cups, only fill halfway with batter. If using liners, fill 2/3. Bake 18-23 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool completely.
While they are cooling, make the frosting by creaming together the butter and cocoa powder. Add in the powdered sugar a half cup at a time while continuing to beat. Then add the vanilla and combine. Pour in the milk just a bit at a time, stopping once you reach your desired consistency.
Spread a layer of Nutella on top of each cooled cupcake. Pipe some frosting on top of that, sprinkle with Oreo crumbs, and garnish with a chocolate almond.
