  • Prepare cake batter and bake as directed on package for 24 cupcakes, blending dry pudding mix into batter before spooning into prepared muffin cups. Cool.
  • Beat cream cheese and butter in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gradually beat in sugar. Whisk in COOL WHIP. Spoon 1-1/2 cups into freezer-weight resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Cut 1 small corner off bottom of bag. Insert tip of bag into top of each cupcake to pipe about 1 Tbsp. frosting into center of cupcake.
  • Frost cupcakes with remaining frosting. Top with chocolate curls. Keep refrigerated.

How to Make Chocolate Curls

Warm chocolate slightly by heating it in the microwave for a few seconds until you can just smudge the chocolate with your thumb. Hold the chocolate steadily between your thumb and fingers of one hand and draw a vegetable peeler slowly over flat bottom of chocolate piece. Allow a thin layer of chocolate to curl as it is peeled off the bottom. This will make long delicate curls. To make short curls, use the same technique on the narrow sides of the chocolate piece. To arrange curls on a dessert, use a toothpick to lift them into place.

Variation

Prepare using 1 pkg. (1.4 oz.) JELL-O Chocolate Flavor Sugar Free Fat Free Instant Pudding, PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese and COOL WHIP LITE Whipped Topping.

How to Easily Fill Cupcakes with Frosting

Poke hole in top of each cupcake with handle of wooden spoon before filling with frosting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These were great. These were great. I made them for work for Valentine's Day with pretty heart cupcake wrappers. I didn't have instant pudding, but used regular pudding in the mix. I also cut down on the sugar for the frosting and added more cool whip which made for a very smooth, almost glass like, frosting. Everyone loved them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My super picky husband LOVES these! My super picky husband LOVES these! He asks for them for every occasion - birthday, Valentine's, anniversary, etc. He says they are even better than the ones at our favorite bakery! And I normally don't like red velvet cake, but the icing is so perfect and not too sweet with this recipe that I even enjoy them!

I made these last week and the cake portion of the cupcake did not taste good at all, maybe I had a bad box mix??? The homemade frosting however was perfect, a real hit with everyone. I don't recommend this recipe due to the poor flavor of the cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Cupcakes! Fabulous Cupcakes! Very easy, delicious, and the white chocolate curls on top make them look like they came from a fancy bakery. A new valentine tradition just started with these cupcakes.
