Prepare cake batter and bake as directed on package for 24 cupcakes. Immediately poke 4 or 5 deep holes in each cupcake at 1/2-inch intervals, using round handle of wooden spoon.
Mix dry pudding mixes and sugar in medium saucepan; stir in milk and butter. Bring to full boil on medium heat, stirring constantly. Spoon over cupcakes.
Refrigerate 2 hours. Gently stir cocoa powder into COOL WHIP; spread over cupcakes. Top with chocolate curls.
Instead of using handle of wooden spoon to poke holes in cake, use a plastic drinking straw with turning motion to make large holes.
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.
Keeping it Safe
Store any leftover cupcakes in the refrigerator.
