Surprise Cupcakes

This is one of my favorite recipes from when I was a kid. And my kids love it today! Since Cream Cheese was on such a great sale this past week at Albertsons, I thought I’d share this recipe with you!

Here is the recipe for the filling. I always have free or nearly free chocolate cake mixes on hand, so this is a pretty cheap treat!
Surprise Cupcake Filling

1 – 8 ounce package of cream cheese, softened
1 – Egg
1/2 cup Sugar
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 cup Chocolate Chips (have a bunch of htese in my pantry from when they were on sale last November)

In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese, egg, sugar and salt until light and fluffy. Stir in chocolate chips.

  • Make your cake mix as usual (unless you’re super mommy and make cakes from scratch – good for you!!)
  • Prepare cupcake tins as usual
  • Pour cake batter only half full in each cupcake liner.
  • Add a spoonful of cream cheese mixture
  • Cover cupcakes with the remaining batter and bake as usual!

My sister uses this recipe with her cakes as well. Adds some fun to boring chocolate cake mix!
