Chocolatiest Cupcakes

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.

Chocolatiest Cupcakes

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
  • 3 eggs
  • crushed Oreos (about 4)
  • Nutella
  • 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.
To assemble:
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.
