Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes with Raspberry M&M's
  • 1 Chocolate Cake Mix (Betty Crocker's Devils Food)
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons raspberry jello*
  • 1 teaspoon raspberry extract
  • Raspberry Frosting
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons raspberry extract and 3 tablespoons raspberry jello*
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • Beat butter and shortening, add in sugar, milk, and extract and coloring. Mix until smooth and creamy.
  1. Prepare cake mix with butter and milk instead of oil and water that it suggests and add eggs one at a time until incorporated.
  2. Place mix in cupcake lined cupcake pan and bake according to package and oven temperature. Test cupcakes at a minimum time to be sure they won't be dry. I bake mine at 325 degrees as mine pans are dark and my cupcakes are finished at the minimum time it suggests.
