  • Preheat oven to 375°F and line cupcake pan with liners and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, combine all of the cupcake ingredients and beat until well combined. Scrape down the sides as needed.
  • Let the batter rest for 10 minutes, then add batter to each liner so they're about ¾ full.
  • Bake the cupcakes for about 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
  • Let the cupcakes sit in the pan for a couple of minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely before frosting.
  • While the cupcakes are cooling, prepare the Chocolate Malt Buttercream as indicated in the recipe instructions.
  • Pipe the frosting onto the cooled cupcakes and top with chocolate sauce (or ganache) and a whopper and paper straw, if desired.


  1. If you really want to make these cupcakes over the top, prepare a batch of instant chocolate pudding and core the cupcakes after baking and cooling and put pudding in the middle before frosting.
