    Made these tonight, and they were delicious! :) They tasted like they were double the calories! I felt that it was definitely a scant 1/4 cup of batter to make 24 cupcakes. I had to spoon some of the batter into the rest of the empty cupcakes to make a total of 24. Thanks for the delicious recipe! :)

    The cupcake batter was crazy dense! More so than a brownie batter… I had to spoon it into the liners. They turned out yummy for sure! Like a brownie cupcake :D We absolutely loved the frosting and plan on using it again on other cakes! Thanks for sharing!

    Hi from the UK!

    Over here we can’t get Cool Whip, but I make my own with milk, a little sugar, vanilla and xanthan gum. I can get Oreo Jell-o through an American food-stuffs supplier, but I was wondering about the Devil’s cake food mix. Is this Betty Crocker’s? Because there is a Betty Crocker’s Devil’s cake food mix in the local supermarkets..

    So want to try this recipe :D

    Hi there, I made these and once I made the frosting it was a little bit too soft, so I put it in the freezer for a bit. I took it out and mixed it with my electric mixer again, and it turned very gummy and the color got darker. It also shrunk down a lot. Any idea why that is?

    hi girls, LOVE your recipes <3
    writing from italy, i can't really find devil's food box here ..
    so i was wondering whats inside exactly?
    i guessed it could be powdered stuffs like flour, cocoa but i didnt know about powdered eggs and powdered milk. since i would like to try it ..any tips for what i can add to flour, cocoa and diet coke?
    in italy powdered eggs doesn't exist and not even milk (and i am afraid of reaction fresh milk+coke)
    thanks for your help :)

    This recipe turned great for me. I used Duncan Hines Devils Food cake mix and I was about to get about 21 cupcakes. I’m allergic to dairy so I substituted the fat free cool whip with a combination of tofu, vanilla extract, soymilk and truvia sweetener to add to the Oreo pudding packet and they were SO good. I’m wondering now how I could figure out the nutrition facts since I altered the recipe?

    Thanks again for sharing the recipe!
