Servings: 36 cupcakes
Prep Time: 25 min
Cook Time: 1 hour
8 ounces sour cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/4 cups sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup strong brewed coffee
1 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
Chocolate Fudge Frosting:
1 cup sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream
5 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
10 tablespoons butter
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
30 to 40 chocolate sandwich cookies
36 gummy worms
For the cupcake:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 3 cupcake pans with cupcake liners.
In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour into cupcake liners about 2/3 full. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pans for 10 minutes. Remove from pans, and let cool completely on wire racks.
For the frosting:
In a medium saucepan, combine sugar and cream. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat, and simmer for 6 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; add chocolate and butter, stirring until melted and smooth. Let cool for 10 minutes. Whisk in confectioners’ sugar. Let mixture cool until it reaches a spreadable consistency, then top cooled cupcakes with frosting.
For the topping:
Place cookies into a resealable plastic bag. Crush cookies with hands to make a “dirt” consistency. Sprinkle frosting with cookie crumbs, top with gummy worm and enjoy.
