We've taken the delectable flavors of ordinary Boston cream pie and turned them into something extraordinary with our recipe for Boston Cream Cupcakes. Packaged cake mix and pudding mix make this shortcut recipe perfect for anytime!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (18-1/4-ounce) package yellow cake mix, batter prepared according to package directions
  • 1 (4-serving-size) package instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (1-ounce) square unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

What to Do

  1. Bake batter according to package directions for cupcakes; let cool, then remove from tins.
  2. Cut top off each cupcake, setting them aside, and using a spoon, scoop out a small amount of the center of the cupcake.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk pudding mix and milk until pudding is thick and smooth; spoon pudding into center of each cupcake. Replace tops of cupcakes.
  4. In a saucepan over low heat, combine sugar, cornstarch, water, and unsweetened chocolate. Cook, stirring constantly until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is thickened, bubbly, and smooth. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Let cool slightly, then spread over top of cupcakes.
  5. Refrigerate cupcakes for at least 1 hour before serving, or until filling and glaze are set.
