Chocolate coffee cupcakes filled with cookie chunks and topped with a mocha butter cream frosting.
For the cupcakes:
In a mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mix, coffee, eggs, yogurt, and melted butter. Beat on low speed for 1 minute. Increase speed and beat on medium for 2 minutes. The batter will be very thick. Stir in cookie chunks by hand.
Fill cupcake liners 1/2 full. Bake at 350ºF for about 18 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
For the mocha buttercream:
In a mixing bowl, cream the butter, shortening, salt, extract and coffee creamer. Slowly add the cocoa powder and powdered sugar until all is incorporated. Whip on medium speed for another minute or until creamy.
Top cupcakes with mocha buttercream. Sprinkle with extra cookie crumbs.
Note: If you like a generous amount of frosting on your cupcakes, double the frosting recipe.
Perfect for a summer picnic.
