"I made these for a school carnival, they turned out great. I did not need to frost them. To do something different, divide cream cheese filling into 4 different parts and tint each part a different color. Feel free to get creative with the surprises!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners. In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese, sugar, and egg together until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Set aside.
  2. Prepare cake mix according to package instructions. Fill each cup half full. Drop a heaping teaspoonful of cream cheese mix in center of each cupcake. Press one cherry, or chocolate kiss, walnut half, toffee piece, a few raisins or peanut putter pieces in the center of each cupcake.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.

This recipe was so easy to make. I used Hershey Kisses for the surprise inside, and everyone loved them. The only thing I added was a chocolate cream cheese frosting which went very well with th...

I've been searching for a recipe my grandma used to make and this is pretty darn close. She used the foil mini cups instead of full size. I think her end result is more like a brownie than cak...

cupcakes remind me of when I got a cupcake in school for a prize, and I set it on my desk and my friend dropped her pencil. when she bent down to get it she stuck her head in my cupcake, her hai...

They don't need frosting. Everyone loved them!

This was awesome,but the "heaping spoonful of cream cheese mixture" was a bit off...might need to double that part of the recipe. Family loved it!

Not so good. Maybe I'll try it with some other cream filling but this one just didn't go over so well. Too much extra stuff on these.
