Almond German Chocolate Cupcakes With Pistachio Whipped Frosting

Fancy up a boxed cake mix with some almond extract.
Since I live in Colorado I like using boxed baking mixes, they just need a small adjustment for the altitude.

Almond German Chocolate Cupcakes with pistachio whip frosting by Over The Apple Tree

  • Boxed German chocolate cake mix
  • Water
  • Veg oil
  • Eggs
  • 2 1/2-3 tsp almond extract
  • Instant pistachio pudding
  • 1 cup milk
  • 8 oz Cool Whip
Use any brand of German chocolate cake mix and follow directions on box, adding 2 1/2-3 tsp. of almond extract to cake mix. Bake as directed

For frosting...with a blender, mix the milk and pudding mix until combined. Fold in the container of Cool Whip. Allow mixture to set in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Using a piping bag or ziplock bag with corner cut, top the cupcakes with whipped frosting. Store in refrigerator.

Since I just made these for my family and not a party where we would eat them all at once, I stored the cupcakes in an airtight container and frosted the cupcakes as we ate them, leaving the remaining frosting in the ziplock bag in the fridge.
