Mocha Cupcakes w/ Whipped Cream

I have yet another cupcake creation for you... I love coffee and chocolate together.  So much.  So it was really just a matter of time before I combined the two in a cupcake format!  These are also incredibly simple to make if you use the shortcut of a cake mix.  So doooo it.

You will need:
1 recipe dark chocolate cake batter yielding 24 cupcakes, prepared2 Tbsp instant coffee
1 Tbsp dark cocoa powder

1. Prepare cake mix according to package, dissolving instant coffee into the required water before adding.

2. Stir in cocoa powder.

3. Fill cupcake holders and bake!

Whipped Topping
-16 oz Fat-free whipped topping (Cook Whip!)
    (or, create your own whipped cream by whipping heavy cream and adding sugar)
-1 Tbsp of instant coffee, ground to a powder

1. Frost with a generous amount of whipped cream.

2. Crush instant coffee granules to a powder and sprinkle on top for a bitter kick.
