boston cream pie cupcakes

to make these yummies you will need...

1. yellow cake mix and what it calls for on box
2. 3/4c flour
3. instant vanilla pudding
4. 1 cup cool whip
5. 1 cup chocolate

add flour to cake mix (makes a better cupcake for cutting and filling ;) )
bake cupcakes and let cool completely

holding your knife on a 45 degree angle cut into cupcake top

use your finger to gently make a well for the "custard"
mix vanilla pudding mix, 1 1/2 c cold skim milk and 1/2c coolwhip. mix for 3 minutes. place in piping bag and fill well in cupcake 3/4 full. replace tops

melt chocolate in microwave. half way through melting add coolwhip. stir, continue to melt. it will be thick. add a splash of milk and stir. you want the chocolate to become smooth again. it usually takes less than a tbsp of milk to get to that point.
using a spoon spread chocolate over cupcakes. just enough to cover most of the top, it will settle a bit.

now doesn't that look yummy??!!??
