surprise cream filled cupcakes


nothing better than biting into a moist chocolate cupcake and being surprised by a sweet creamy filling! unless you're my husband, who doesn't like frosting. . . this is an adaptation of my mil's recipe for ho ho cupcakes. it is mostly from scratch, but can be simplified by substituting a can of your favorite prepared frosting for the tops of the cupcakes. these are a huge hit at my childrens’ birthday parties, with the adults as well as the kids!
