Devil's Food Tea Cakes with Pinot Noir Frosting

Let's face it, this is just delicious.

Cake Ingredients:
1 box devil's food cake mix (plus ingredients called for on back)
1 cup melted chocolate

Frosting Ingredients:
1 cup butter, softened
1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup red wine (I used Pinot Noir)
1 tsp red food coloring gel (optional)

Mix cake with ingredients called for on the back (usually an egg and some oil!) and then add melted chocolate.  Bake cupcakes according to directions.  I used a teacup pan, which creates a space in the middle for filling, but you could also do these as regular cupcakes or any variation you can think of!

To make frosting, mix all of the ingredients until smooth.  I added red food coloring to make the frosting a bit brighter, but that's really up to you.  Enjoy!

Tips:  This should probably not be served to children, unless you live in France.
