Black and White Cupcakes

These are my go-to cupcake recipe they are soooo much better than a cake mix and taste gourmet!

Black and White Chocolate Cupcakes
1 Cup all-purpose flour
7/8 (between 3/4 and 1 cup) Cup ounces granulated sugar
1/2 Cup dark chocolate cocoa
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 Cup sour cream
3 eggs, beaten
3/4 Cup chocolate pudding, prepared
1/2 Cup butter, melted
3/4 C or 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 24 cupcake pan cups with paper liners.
In a large bowl, measure the dry ingredients and mix together with electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds until well combined.
Add wet ingredients and mix on medium speed for 1 minute. Stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl and resume mixing on medium speed for 1 additional minute. Stop mixer and fold in chocolate chips.
Fill the prepared cupcake liners with batter 3/4 full, and bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 18 minutes. Let the cupcakes cool completely.

White Chocolate Frosting
1 Cup cream cheese, softened
1/2 Cup butter, softened
3/4 Cup white chocolate, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 Cup  powdered sugar
To make the frosting, beat cream cheese and butter in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed for 1 minute. Add melted chocolate and vanilla; mix for an additional 1 minute. Add powdered sugar gradually, beating until light and fluffy after each addition.
Frost the chocolate cupcakes with White Chocolate Frosting and get a chocolate bar and use your potato slicer to make curls.
