Share this:

I developed this recipe with my friends at Cool Springs Wines & Spirits. They are a great source for liqueurs and wines for cooking and baking. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my friend and family enjoy it.

1 package chocolate cake mix

1 (5.9 oz) package instant Godiva™ dark chocolate pudding mix

1/3 cup olive oil

3 large eggs

1 cup Godiva™ Dark Chocolate Liqueur

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Insert cupcake liners into your cupcake baking pan. Set aside.

Mix cake mix and all ingredients in large mixing bowl for about 2 minutes on high. Fill cupcake liners only halfway (this avoids them spilling over the sides as they are baking).

Bake for about 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center of pan comes out clean.

Cool in the cupcake pan. Frost cooled cupcakes with Godiva™ Chocolate Martini Buttercream.
