How To Make Chocolate Cupcakes with a Strawberry Mousse Frosting
Rich, fudgy, and dense chocolate cupcakes are balanced out by a light and airy strawberry mousse frosting to create a perfectly tasty treat.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with liners and set aside.
In a large bowl, sift together the pudding and cake mix.
In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, vegetable oil, sour cream, yogurt, and vanilla.
Mix wet and dry until combined (do not over-stir or beat in too much air).
Fill up the liners ¾ of the way full and bake for 17 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Remove and let cool.
Remove the strawberry stems. Place the strawberries in a food processor and pulse until completely liquid. Stir in the strawberry pudding and then lightly fold in the Cool Whip.
Using a star tip pipe the strawberry filling onto the completely cooled chocolate cupcakes.
Optionally, garnish with a piece of a strawberry and a sprinkle of powdered sugar
