Out of This World Cupcakes

Our crazy household was filled with lots of fun and activity this weekend.  Lydia did really well in her first Speech tournament and our favorite football teams won including the mighty Huntington Highlanders.  And how could they not with this beautiful fan cheering them along?

I also got a chance to do some baking.  I made a YUMMY chimichanga recipe that I will post soon.  Chili is in the fridge for this week and dessert, well, dessert is already made (and partly eaten!)  As promised here is the Milky Way Cupcakes recipe.  These things are amazing and I got the recipe from Inside Brew Crew Life

Milky Way Cupcakes
From the highest of heights to the depths of the sea
Creation's revealing Your majesty...
Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
All powerful, untameable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God

1 devils food chocolate cake mix (Cheap is fine!)
3 eggs
1 1/3 c. water
1/2 c. oil
1/4 c.  cocoa powder (yes, more choc)
2-3 tbsp. instant coffee
1/4 sour cream
Mix all together and bake in muffin tin according to your package.

1/2 c. heavy whipping cream
1 c. choc chips
(again gotta have more choc)
Bring cream to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in chips. Stir until smooth and oh so yummilicous looking. Let cool.

1 c. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. milk
4 c. powdered sugar
8 snack size milky ways
2-3 extra tbsp. butter

Beat your butter, vanilla, salt, and milk until creamy. Slowly add sugar until thick. You can thin this out with another tbsp. of milk if you need to. Set aside. Cut milky ways up and put in sauce pan on stove with extra butter. Stir until it is an ooeeyy gooey chocolatey mess. Begin whipping the frosting again and add the melted candy bars as you whip.
After your cupcakes and filling have cooled. Scoop out the center of your cupcake with a melon scooper (or use a small spoon).   Fill the cavity with the chocolate goodness (resist the urge to lick the spoon after each scoop:-) Frost with the Milky Way Frosting. Decorate with more choc...a milky way bar finishes it off.
You may want to keep the cupcakes in the fridge but let them come to room temperature before eating...Enjoy!
