For the cupcakes:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the muffin mix, water, sour cream, and egg; stir until just moistened. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Fill a greased or paper-lined miniature muffin pan two-thirds full with the batter. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before transferring the cupcakes from the pans to a wire rack to cool.

For the frosting:

In a microwave, melt the shortening and chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Allow the frosting to cool for at least 5 minutes. Using a rubber spatula coat the tops of the muffins with a layer of frosting.
