1 pkt cake mix, chocolate
1 pkt strawberries, cleaned and hulled
1 pkt pudding, chocolate
Fresh mint sprigs, optional but awesome
1. Prepare cupcakes according to package and let cool. Using a paring knife, core out a well down into each cupcake, for your strawberry to fit into. Prepare your pudding according to the package. Let it set until nice and solid (wet sloppy pudding will ruin the cupcakes, so don’t be in a rush, let the pudding firm up!)
2. Stick the strawberry pointy side down into your cupcakes. Take the piece of the cupcake that you cut out, and place it on top of the strawberry, after you push it down into the cupcake.
3. Top liberally with pudding in lieu of icing.
4. Add a sprig of mint.
5. Cut each cupcake in half and set it on a plate, because presentation is everything with these. They are DELICIOUS and super easy!
