Carlee's Celebrate Spring Cupcakes
  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 (3.9 ounce) packages instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate sprinkles
  • 72 mini chocolate candy-coated Easter eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. Place chocolate cake mix, water, vegetable oil, and eggs in a mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until thoroughly combined, about 2 minutes.
  4. Fill prepared muffin cups 2/3 full with batter.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean, 19 to 23 minutes.
  6. Allow cupcakes to cool thoroughly.
  7. Beat the 2 packages of pudding mix with milk in a bowl using an electric mixer until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  8. Beat thawed whipped topping into pudding mixture to make a creamy filling.
  9. Spoon about 1 1/2 cup chocolate pudding filling into a pastry bag fitted with a large piping tip.
  10. Press the piping tip into the center of each cupcake and fill cupcake with about 1 1/2 tablespoon of pudding mixture.
  11. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of remaining pudding mixture about 1 1/2 inches across into the center of each cupcake to make a nest. Press chocolate sprinkles into edges of the nests; place 3 mini chocolate eggs into each nest.
