  • 1 15.25 oz. box chocolate cake mix prepared according to package instructions
  • 1 1.75 oz. jar hot fudge sauce I used Smuckers
  • chocolate buttercream frosting homemade or can of store bought
  • chocolate sprinkles


  • Preheat oven according to instructions on cake mix (I baked mine at 350 degrees)
  • Mix chocolate cake mix according to package instructions. Line muffin tins with 24 cupcake liners. Evenly fill liners with cupcake batter.
  • Spoon room temperature hot fudge sauce onto cupcake batter. I used a little over a teaspoon for each cupcake and used the whole jar. The more the merrier!
  • Bake cupcakes according to package instructions. (I baked mine for 18 minutes)
  • Let cupcakes sit for a few minutes. Remove to cooling rack to completely cool.
  • Frost with buttercream frosting. You can frost them as fancy or plain as you would like.
