FOR THE CUPCAKES:
box Devils Food Chocolate Cake Mix (18 Ounce Box)
box Instant Chocolate Pudding (3.9 Ounce Box)
whole Large Eggs, At Room Temperature
cup Sour Cream At Room Temperature
cups Guinness Beer, At Room Temperature
stick Butter, Melted
FOR THE FROSTING:
ounces, weight Cream Cheese (½ Brick), At Room Temperature
cups Heavy Cream
teaspoons Vanilla Extract
pounds Confectioner's Sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a regular sized muffin tin with paper liners.
In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, sour cream, beer, and melted butter. You will want to make sure your ingredients are at room temperature so the melted butter will not seize up on you. Mix on medium speed for 1-2 minutes until thoroughly combined. Batter will be thick. Spoon batter into cupcake liners to about ¾ way full. Bake for 18-22 minutes. Remove from pan and allow to cool completely.
Meanwhile, make frosting by beating the cream cheese on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add the cream and vanilla, beat an until smooth. Turning your mixer to low, slowly combine powdered sugar until smooth.
Frost cupcakes when cool. And enjoy! Makes about 24 cupcakes. Store leftovers in fridge.
