1/2 cup butter
1 cup Lucky Bucket's Certified Evil
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup cocoa
1 cup sour cream
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 cups confectioners' sugar
1/3 cup Lucky Bucket's Certified Evil
In a small saucepan, melt the butter with the Certified Evil over medium heat. Remove from heat and pour into a bowl.
Whisk in sugar and cocoa. Stir well, then whisk in the sour cream, eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking soda and salt just until blended.
Divide the batter between paper-lined cupcake tins and bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 20-25 minutes, until tops are springy to the touch.
To make the frosting, beat the butter, confectioners’ sugar and Certified Evil until you have a spreadable frosting. Wait until the cupcakes have cooled completely before frosting.
