These won the cupcake contest at this year's family Halloween party. I'm telling you they are amazing!!

Truffle Filled Cupcakes (Broomstick Style)  


  • 1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 package (18-1/4 ounces) devil's food cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 3/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 large tub of cool whip
  • 1 pkg instant butterscotch pudding mix (dry) 
  • 1 bag small  Reeses pieces buttercups 
  • bag of pretzel sticks
For truffles, in a small saucepan, melt the chocolate, milk and butter over low heat; stir until blended. Remove from the heat. Stir in vanilla. Transfer to a small bowl; cover and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Roll into twenty-four 1-in. balls; chill 1 hour longer.

For cupcakes, in a large bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs. sour cream, oil, water and vanilla; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes.  

Fill paper-lined muffin cups 2/3 full of batter. Bake at 350° for 17-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Scoop out a small hole in the top of each cupcake. Insert a truffle ball into hole. 

In cool whip container add dry pudding mix and stir well. Spread topping on cupcakes.  Unwrap buttercups and with a chopstick carefully pierce a hole in the top of each buttercup. Insert a pretzel for the broomstick. Serve chilled or at room temperature. Enjoy!
