I doctored a box of Duncan Hines Milk Chocolate cake mix for these cupcakes. I used the milk chocolate cake mix because I thought the green color would show up better than with devils food cake mix. I think German Chocolate cake mix would work well too. Also note that these cupcakes use a whole 1-ounce bottle of green food coloring. Just dump the whole thing in the batter. It gives the cupcakes a great green color!
