How to Make Andes Candies Cupcake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat over to 350'F

    Line two cupcake pans with cupcake liners.
  • 2Whisk together cocoa powder, pudding mix and hot water
  • 3Sift together flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder together in a medium mixing bowl. set this dry mixture aside.
  • 4Heat sauce pan over medium heat
    once pan is hot add butter and sugar, mix until butter is melted and sugar is fully incorporated
  • 5Put butter/sugar mix in a large mixing bowl, and beat on low for about 5-6 minutes. Adding the sour cream and beat until fluffy. Add vanilla and beat until incorporated.
  • 6Add eggs, one at a time, making sure each is fully mixed in before adding the next.
  • 7With mixer on low, add flour mixture in 3 batches, Adding the hot water cocoa mixture in 2 batches starting and ending with a flour batches.
    Beat until completely combined, but do not over work the batter! Devil's Food should be dense, not airy like Angel's Food.
  • 8Add batter to cupcake cups and bake for about 20 minutes, or until comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire wrack.
  • 9While cakes are baking and cooling make your cream filling and butter cream frosting.
    This is simple: to make the frosting just blend all frosting ingredients together until complete incorporated. To make cream filling: simply mix together all cream filling ingredients until completely incorporated.
    Chill both the cream filling and the butter cream frosting in the fridge until ready to be used.
  • 10Assemble:

    Core each cupcake, either with a cupcake corer, or you can carefully core them with a sharp paring knife. Try not to cut too deep... or yourself. :-D
  • 11Put about 1 teaspoon or so of mint cream filling into each cupcake hole to stuff the cupcakes. Allow a little bit of the cream to overflow into a cute little peak out of the hole.
  • 12Frost each cake with mint chocolate butter cream frosting. I like to allow the green mint cream filling peak to show through.

    Garnish with crusted Andes Candies.
