    I decided to use white cake mix and coconut cream pudding. I only used egg whites, so my cupcakes would be Snow White with mini chocolate chips. The coconut flavor didn't really come through, but it didn't matter. The cupcakes were yummy! I used a can of whipped butter cream frosting and sprinkled mini chips on top. These were quick and easy to make. My family enjoyed them and I will be making again using vanilla pudding. Thank you for the recipe!

    Very moist cupcakes! I made them for a 2-year-old birthday party and decorated them like Cookie Monster. I got 24 cupcakes from this recipe.

    I made these in heart shaped muffin tins, added strawberry extract to the batter and tinted the frosting pink! Very Valentiney & delicious!

    They were good a little to sweet for me but my kids loved them. I also work for a Alzheimer home and will make this recipe for about 40 people. The recipe is very quick and easy and budget friendly.
