1 (18 1/4 ounce) package German chocolate cake mix
4 large eggs
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 1/4 cups orange juice
1-2 teaspoon orange zest (depending on how orangey you want your cupcakes)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Directions

Microwave 1 cup chocolate morsels in a 2-cup glass measuring cup at HIGH 1 minute, stirring after 30 seconds.


Stir until smooth.


Cool slightly.


Beat cake mix and next 3 ingredients at low speed with an electric mixer until moistened.


Increase speed to medium, and beat 1 to 2 minutes or until well blended and smooth.

Spoon batter by 1/4-cupfuls into paper baking cups in muffin pans.
