Ghirardelli Cupcake Mix

By on November 4th, 2009 . Filed under: Cupcake Ideas, Kitchen, Recipes .

My husband brought me home a nice little present from BJ’s Wholesale Club this weekend.  It was this box of Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate Cupcake Mix. 


Recently I have been brave and tried some new scratch cupcake recipes but boxed mixes will always have a special place in my heart.   This box came with 2 powdered cake mixes,  2 powdered frosting mixes and liners to make 2 dozen cupcakes total.  Both mixes needed a few simple liquid ingredients.  Here’s the finished cupcakes:


These cupcakes were so yummy!   Although the recipe stated that each bag made 12 cupcakes, I ended up with 15 and had to resort to some Betty Crocker frosting to finish them off (that’s why you see 2 shades of brown).   We are also big frosting lovers in my house so if I had put on less I may have had enough for all 15. I added some chocolate sprinkles to a few so maybe these were actually quadruple chocolate cupcakes!    They tasted best the same night they were made because the chocolate chips in the cake were still melted.   I can’t wait to make the other batch!

    Thanks for the article, just bought the mix, can’t wait to make them!

    How did you get the icing to be swirly like that? I’m an amatuer.

    Cathie- I’m a amatuer too! I used the Wilton Cupcake Heaven Dessert Decorator. It’s super easy to use and works like a pastry bag. Good luck!

    Excellently written article, if all bloggers offered the same content as you, the internet would be a much better place. Please keep it up! Cheers.

    How much/many eggs, oil and water does this mix (and frosting) require?

    I’m in love with these cupcakes! I found them at BJ’s a while back, and they are heavenly! I was wondering if you have found a recipe that is like them. I have been looking and trying recipes since I can’t find the mix anymore! :( I’m getting close, but it’s still not the same and no where as easy!!! Thanks!!

    I can no longer find the Ghiradelli Triple Chocolate Cupcake mix. In contacting them, Ghiradelli told me to check with Sam’s Club and BJ’ Wholesale Club, but I’ve struck out with both. Does anyone have a website where I can purchase this wonderful mix?

    My mother had a fit when she could find them at BJ’s and got to the root of it.. it’s a seasonal product and should be back soon!

    Sam’s Club did NOT have that mix last holiday season nor did they have the mix this holiday season. Those were the BEST cupcakes I have ever tasted. I took some to a riding club meeting and everyone absolutely loved the cupcakes. If anyone can duplicate that recipe or has a source for purchasing the boxes of mix, please share.
