Last Friday night we came home from a friend's house to find a little plate of these Boston Cream Pie Cuties at our front door. My mom had made some for a friend and dropped a few extra by. Would you believe that my tummy was still quite full from dinner AND dessert and I managed to have two of these cuties?? They are so good!
I made a batch a few days ago and that was a bad decision! Mine don't look nearly as cute as my mom's did, but these little cuties taste soooo good! Hopefully you have better self control than I do ;-) Either way, here is the recipe!
HEAT oven to 350ºF.
PREPARE cake batter and bake as directed on package for 20 cupcakes. Cool completely.
BEAT pudding mix and milk with whisk 2 min. Let stand 5 min. Meanwhile, use serrated knife to cut cupcakes horizontally in half. Whisk 1/2 cup COOL WHIP into pudding; spoon onto bottom halves of cupcakes, using about 1 Tbsp. for each. Cover with cupcake tops.
MICROWAVE remaining COOL WHIP and chocolate in small microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1-1/2 min. or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring after 1 min. Stir until blended. Let stand 15 min.; spread onto cupcakes. Refrigerate 15 min.
ONLY MAKE 20 CUPCAKES (instead of 24)
HOW TO CUT CUPCAKES IN HALF~Use a serrated knife to easily cut the cupcakes in half.
