Easiest Boston Cream Cupcakes

The name says it all--with only 5 ingredients, these Boston Cream Cupcakes are almost too easy to be true. But they are.

Yield: Makes 2 dozen


  • 1 18-1/4 oz. pkg. yellow cake mix
  • 1 3.4-oz. pkg. instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 1 1/2 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed and divided
  • 4 1-oz. sqs. semi-sweet baking chocolate


  1. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Fill greased muffin cups 2/3 full and bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Cool completely.
  2. Whisk pudding mix and milk for 2 minutes; let stand 5 minutes. Use a serrated knife to cut off the top of each cupcake; set tops aside. Stir 1/2 cup whipped topping into pudding.
  3. Spoon one tablespoon onto each cupcake; replace cupcake tops. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine remaining whipped topping and chocolate.
  4. Microwave for one minute; stir and microwave an additional 30 seconds. Stir until chocolate is melted; let stand 15 minutes. Frost cupcakes with chocolate mixture.
