Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Fudge Frosting

These cupcakes are so yummy! It's a recipe that I gave my Mom years ago, she made these for a family reunion recently and I got some pictures before they were all gobbled up! The fudge frosting is her addition. -Sarah

Chocolate Chip Cupcakes
1 pkg. yellow or white cake mix
1 small package instant vanilla pudding
1/2 c. oil
1 c. water
4 eggs
1 c. chocolate chips

-Combine all but chocolate chips and beat on low until mixed and then on medium speed for 4 minutes.
-Stir in chocolate chips. Fill paper lined cupcake pans. Bake at 375 for 18 minutes. Cool and frost.

Fudge Frosting
1 c. sugar
5 T. butter
1/3 c. milk
1 c. chocolate chips

-Bring sugar, butter and milk to a boil and boil for 1 minute.
-Remove from heat and add chocolate chips, stir until they melt into the frosting.
-Cool to room temperature and frost cupcakes.
(This is a softer frosting and it works well to dip the cupcake top into the frosting and smooth out with a knife)
