Chocolate Orange Cupcakes!



Cupcakes:
1 box devil's food cake mix
1 1/2 cups of milk
3 tablespoons dutch coco powder- save 1 tablespoon for dusting the tops of the cupcakes.
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs

Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. With an electric beater mix for 2 minutes. I bake at 300 degrees. This yields a softer and moister cake. Follow box directions. Remove after a toothpick comes out of the center of the cakes clean.

Frosting:
1 orange- small to medium juice and zest
1 box chocolate jello instant pudding mix
1/4 cup of milk
1 tub of cool whip type product

Put everything into a bowl and mix. After frosting dust tops of cakes with remaining coco powder.
YUM!! We are expecting to get snowed in, like most of the United States! Enjoy these cupcakes! Stay safe and warm. Remember, you can Rock That Plate!

Thanks for the comments on my blog, Andrea. I don't cook many desserts, but do love chocolate and fruit combinations. After reading this, I may try a orange and chocolate souffle. We get a dozen free-range, organic eggs every week - including some this morning! Thanks for the inspiration.
