Beast Themed Cupcakes: Filled Cupcakes with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

by Nellie

If you are planning a Beauty and the Beast themed party, you must try these Beast themed cupcakes! A fun sweet treat featuring chocolate and blue frosting.

One of my favorite Disney movies is Beauty and The Beast. I remember watching it for the first time when I was five.

Belle, the book loving girl who falls in love with a beast that is really a young prince under a curse, and will become human again if he can get someone to fall in love with him and break the spell before his 21st birthday (which is about 3 years away), it’s a classic story that I have seen in almost every form.

If you love the movie as much as we do, these Beast themed cupcakes are so good and fun to make with the kids. 

It’s a great treat for movie night or even kids birthday parties. It’s great for the chocolate lovers in your house as well.

It’s a chocolate filled cupcake that will wow your guests! I’ve shared dozens of cupcake recipes here and this one is definitely one of my favorites.

For the kids to make this for their own birthdays or even with friends can be great fun and they will enjoy making their very own chocolate filled beast cupcakes! I hope you try them out and let me know how much you love them.

Instructions

    Directions for Cupcakes:

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray or line a standard muffin tin.
    2. Steps 1-2: Add cake mix to a large mixing bowl. Using a hand or stand mixer, mix in your water, oil, eggs and chocolate pudding on medium until well incorporated. 
    3. Step 3: Add batter into the muffin tin until each is about 2/3 full. Bake for 16-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before adding the chocolate hot fudge sauce filling. 

    Directions for Frosting:

    1. Steps 4-6:  In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, cream the butter, and beat until light and fluffy. Melt the white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl in 15 second bursts until smooth. Add a bit of water if needed. Mix in melted white chocolate and the vanilla extract.
    2. Steps 7-9: Slowly mix in the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, while adding a bit of the half and half or milk in between each cup.  Continue to mix for 1 minute or until creamy. Add in your blue food coloring, 1-2 drops at a time. Mix until desired color is achieved.
    3. Steps 10-11: Using the bottom of a spoon or other utensil, poke a hole in the middle of each cupcake, about ¾ down. Add the chocolate hot fudge sauce to the cupcake injector. Carefully inject the filling into the middle of each cupcake.
    4. Steps 12-14: Prepare piping bag and fill bag with frosting.  Frost your cupcakes, add your blue sanding sugar, and top each cupcake with a sugar rose. Enjoy!
