This is another recipe from my mom. Just biting into one of these brings back warm and fuzzy memories. My recipe drawer is full of recipes from my mom. There are 2 kinds- the ones that she wrote out on little 3x5 cards just for me - thanks Mom! And then there are the ones like this one that is written on a ripped piece of paper in my very hastily scrawled printing (I never write in cursive). This was one where I called my mom in desperation and she read off the recipe to me over the phone. Now that we are both e-mail lovers, I get recipes that way.
These are so yummy and magical- how does that little perfect circle of cream cheese filling get in there?
Surprise Inside Cupcakes
Prepare one package of chocolate cake mix
Fill 30 muffin cups 2/3 full (I think I only filled 24 cupcakes cups)
Drop a teaspoon of filling onto each cup of batter
Beat together: 8 oz. cream cheese (softened)
1/3 c. sugar
Bake at 350 for 15-25 min (I think mine were in there for closer to 15 min. )
Beat 3/4 c. powdered sugar w/ 2 egg whites (see it is healthy :) til stiff. Cream another 3/4 c. powdered sugar w/ 2T butter. Fold in mixture.
