Coffee is one of the most important things I need to function in life…so why not bake with it….this was one of the recipes I made for the Jack and Jill. I got bored and decided to try them again. I really liked the taste of these and who doesn’t like white chocolate and mocha together.

For the Cupcakes
1 white cake mix
3 eggs
1/3  cup oil
1 cup  hot water
1/4  cup International Delight Mocha Latte drink mix
For the White Chocolate  Frosting
6 oz.  white baking chocolate (chopped up)
1/4  cup heavy cream
1 cup  butter, softened
1 1/4  cup powdered sugar
1/2  teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. In  a large mixing bowl dissolve the mocha drink mix in the hot water. Add the rest  of the cake ingredients and beat on low for 1 minute. Beat on medium for 2  minutes. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full and bake at 350* for 20-22 minutes. Cool  completely.
  2. Stir  white chocolate and whipping cream in a small saucepan on low heat until melted  and smooth. Cool. Add to the butter, sugar, and vanilla and beat on high until  light and fluffy. Frost cupcakes. Drizzle with chocolate before serving if  desired. Makes 24 cupcakes. Store in a sealed container in the  refrigerator.
