  • Stand Mixer
  • Cupcake mold
  • Cooling wire rack
  • Spatula
  • Measuring cup


  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 1 box chocolate pudding
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup cooking oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups cheesecake frosting
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles
  • 12 shortbread cookies


  • Preheat the oven at 350F, and coat the cupcake mold with baking spray.
  • In a mixing bowl add the cake mix. Incorporate pudding mix, the eggs, the milk, and the cooking oil. Mix until the batter comes together and scoop the same amount into cupcake mold.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until cooked. Insert a wooden toothpick and if it comes out clean the cupcakes are ready.
  • Take the cupcakes out of the mold and place in a wire rack to cool before icing.
  • Place the cheesecake icing inside the microwave and cook for less than a minute. Do it carefully if you cook too much the icing will be watery and that is not what we want.
  • When the icing has a glaze consistency pour it on top of each cupcake and decorate with sprinkles. Add a shortbread cookie as a topper and serve with chocolate coins.


If you do not want to use premade cake mix use your own homemade chocolate cake batter or use this other recipe for chocolate cake. It is easy and yummy too. 
Same thing if you prefer a homemade icing follow these instructions:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 3 cups powdered sugar
In a large bowl, beat softened butter and cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Add the vanilla, and the powdered sugar one spoon at a time. Mix until forming the icing.
