Ingredients You'll Need

3 large eggs
1 cup mayonnaise
1 box devil's food cake mix
1 cup water
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup sour cream


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place papers in 24 muffin-tin cups.

In a mixing bowl, beat eggs. Beat in mayonnaise. Mix well with devil's food cake mix, water, and vanilla.

Divide the batter among the cups. Bake until toothpick inserted comes out clean, about 25 minutes.


For the frosting, melt semisweet chocolate chips in the microwave on medium for a minute or so, stirring intermittently.

The chips may initially retain their shape but can be whisked into a smooth consistency when done.

Whisk in sour cream. Frost the cupcakes immediately.
