Foodie Fanatices: Chocolate Banana Cream Miniature Cupcakes

I recently joined a blog called Foodie Fanatic. Every 3 months there is a new chef from the food network featured and we make recipes that someone picks. This time it is Paula Deen. Michelle From Something new is Cooking  picked this one. We made these ones together. My son could not get enough of them.

Chocolate Banana Cream Miniature Cupcakes


1 (18.25 oz) box chocolate cake mix
1 (3.4 oz) box instant banana cream flavored pudding mix
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup sour cream
2 cups thawed frozen whipped topping
Garnish: dried banana chips (could not find at my grocery the day I went)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 (24-cup) miniature muffin pans with foil liners.

Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes. Remove from pans, and cool completely on wire racks.

In a medium bowl, combine pudding mix and confectioners' sugar. Add cream and sour cream; beat at medium speed with a mixer until very thick. Fold in whipped topping. Pipe or spread mixture over cupcakes. Garnish with banana chips, if desired. Store cupcakes, covered, in refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Yield: 4 dozen miniature cupcakes
