  • 1 package Betty Crocker┬« SuperMoist┬« devil's food cake mix
  • 1 Cup water
  • 2 3/4 Fl Oz vegetable oil
  • 4 Tbsp bourbon
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 Fl Oz whipping cream
  • 1/2 Lb semisweet chocolate , finely chopped
  • 1 3/4 Cup marshmallow creme
  • 1 Cup butter , softened
  • 2 Tbsp vodka , vanilla flavored
  • 1 Cup butter , softened
  • 3 Cup powdered sugar
  • 4 Tbsp coffee flavored liqueur
Heat oven to 350 ℉ (325 ℉ for dark or nonstick pan). Generously spray 24 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray. Make cake batter as directed on box, using cake mix, water, oil, bourbon, eggs and vanilla. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups (about two-thirds full).

Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, for filling: In medium microwavable bowl, microwave whipping cream uncovered on High for 1 minute and 30 seconds, or until boiling. Stir in remaining filling ingredients (semisweet chocolate, 1/3 normal cup softened butter, and 3 normal tbsp coffee liquor) until chocolate is melted. Cover; refrigerate about 60 minutes or until spreading consistency.

For frosting: In large bowl, beat marshmallow creme, 1 normal cup butter and the vodka with electric mixer on medium speed until blended. Beat in powdered sugar until fluffy.

To assemble, cut tops off each cupcake horizontally. Spread about 1 tbsp filling onto bottom of each cupcake; add cupcake top. Pipe frosting on cupcake tops. Just before serving, drizzle each cupcake with 1/2 tsp coffee liqueur.
