Chocolate & Strawberry Cupcakes

Serving Size: 24 cupcakes

Chocolate & Strawberry Cupcakes

Ingredients

    Chocolate Fudge Cupcake
  • 1 Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter (butter not margarine)
  • 1 cup water
  • Strawberry Whipped Cream (filling)
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 5-6 T. chopped/processed strawberries
  • Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting (from Glorious Treats)
  • ½ cup butter, at room temperature
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 4 cups powdered confectioners sugar
  • 1-4 Tablespoons heavy whipping cream

Instructions

    Chocolate Fudge Cupcake
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Mix on low until blended, then mix on high for 2 mins.
  3. Pour into paper lined cupcake pans.
  4. Bake for 20 min.
  5. Strawberry Whipped Cream (filling)
  6. Chop strawberries in blender (I used my Magic Bullet) just until they look thick and “liquidy”. I used really large strawberries and it took 4 to make 5-6 Tablespoons.
  7. Beat whipping cream, and vanilla until it starts to thicken.
  8. Mix in sugar.
  9. Fold in strawberries.
  10. Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting (from Glorious Treats)
  11. *Place butter in a large mixing bowl and blend slightly. Add cream cheese and blend until combined, about 30 seconds.
  12. *Add the cocoa powder( before adding the sugar, so it gets fully incorporated into the butter and cream cheese.)
  13. *Add vanilla extract and powdered sugar and blend on low speed until combined. Increase to medium speed and beat until it begins to get fluffy.
  14. *Slowly add the heavy cream, a little bit at a time until desired consistency is met. (Don’t add too much if you want the frosting to stay in place when piped on cupcakes.)
  15. *Beat until fluffy, about 1 minute.
  16. *Use at once or keep refrigerated. (This frosting will keep well in the refrigerator for several days, but you may need to re-beat it for the best texture.)
  17. Directions for Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes with Strawberries & Cream filling topped with Chocolate Frosting
  18. Bake cupcakes and cool completely
  19. Cut out a small section in the center of the cupcake (save in bowl)
  20. add strawberry whipped cream to the hole
  21. replace the tops (just do the best you can – or you could just leave them off)
  22. pipe chocolate frosting on top of cupcake with 1M tip.

Notes

I also did some cupcakes the reverse…….I filled the cupcakes with the Chocolate Frosting and topped with the Strawberry Whipped Cream.

The strawberry whipped cream was delicious on top as well, if you want to skip the chocolate cream cheese frosting.

    Hi! I've recently found your blog and absolutely love it!! I'm excited to try this recipe and was wondering if you've ever tried freezing these once they are completely assembled? I'm making them for 2 different b-day parties this week and was thinking of making them all at the same time and freezing them for the 2nd party. What do you think? Thanks!! =)

    I would freeze them with out the filling/frosting and they'll be fine – filling and frosting is quick.
