"Easy to make mini cupcakes that taste like a miniature Boston cream pie! This semi-homemade version of one of my favorite pies is a big hit at potlucks or just for a little snack to have around the house. It is also easy to make in stages and defrosts nicely when ready to serve by just letting them sit out for an hour or so on the counter."

1 (18.25 ounce) box
yellow cake mix
1 (3.5 ounce) package
instant French vanilla pudding
1 (16 ounce) can
prepared chocolate frosting
maraschino cherries, quartered
This was very good, but I have a special kit for inserting the. Frosting... so I didn't. Need to use a seringe. And I did a rainbow cake instead of a plain white cake... Great for Easter. Tux for sharing hope others like it too.
I made these into full size cupcakes but instead of using canned frosting, I made a simple glaze with the "Satiny Chocolate Glaze" recipe from this site. Soooo simple to use.. just dip the tops and let set in fridge! I didn't use the cherries, and the cream that I used for the center was a little different.. I infused my cream stuffed cupcake filling: (1/2 c solid vegetable shortening, 1 1/4 c powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 3/4 marshmallow fluff, 3 to 4 tbsp milk) with some instant french vanilla pudding. Next time will add some more liquid to it or something cuz it was a little grainy from the instant pudding but everyone still raved about them!! BIG success!
A very creative idea! I made the cake from scratch but otherwise followed the steps. Delicious!
First of all if you use the true Mini Muffin pans this recipe makes lots more than 24. Actually I got over 50 from it using my mini muffin pans. Now maybe it would make 24 regular size muffins?????
Also I would not add 2 cups of milk for the pudding to put inside the muffins. It was way too thin.Maybe use 1 1/2. The thing that I am a bit upset with is I had to make something for a funerl dinner and I am not sure these will turn out like they should. I still need to frost them.
