How to Make Chocolate - Candy Cane Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. HEAT oven to 350°F. Chop 4 chocolate squares; set aside. Beat cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, sour cream, oil and water with mixer on low speed until moistened. Beat on medium speed 2 min. Stir in chopped chocolate and 2 Tbsp. candy. Spoon into 30 paper-lined 2-1/2-inch muffin cups.
    BAKE 20 to 23 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool completely.
    FROST cupcakes with COOL WHIP. Melt remaining chocolate; drizzle over cupcakes. Top with remaining candy.
  2. TIP:To crush candy canes,
    you want to crush the candy to about a medium size. The candy inside the cake melts to give a peppermint flavor and the candy on top provides a bit of candy crunch.
