Chocolate Malt Cupcakes

Start to finish: 30 minutes, plus cooling time

Yields: 24 cupcakes


1 box Devil's Food Cake Mix

1/2 cup oil

3 eggs

3/4 cup buttermilk

1 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup malted milk powder


8 ounces of cream cheese

1/2 cup butter, softened

3-4 cups powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup malted milk powder


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line pans with cupcakes liners.

Sift cake mix and add 1/2 cup malted milk powder.

In a separate bowl, combine oil, eggs, buttermilk, sour cream and vanilla extract.

Combine dry and wet ingredients, and fill cupcake liners 3/4 full. Bake for 16-22 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean.

Buttercream: Beat cream cheese and butter for two minutes. Add Powdered sugar, cocoa, vanilla and malted milk powder. Beat well. (If your frosting is too thin, add more powdered sugar; if it is too thick, add 1 tablespoon milk.)

Pipe buttercream onto cooled cupcakes and top with colored straws and chocolate malt balls.
