DEVILED FOOD OR CHOCOLATE CUPCAKE MIX
1Devil's Food or Chocolate cake mix, made into cupcakes as per directions. Then let the cupcakes cool on cooling racks.
2Seedless Raspberry Jam, any brand. With a paring knife cut a 1-inch piece from top of each cupcake (do not discard) or use a cupcake plunger; then fill each hole with 1 teaspoon jam and replace cut out pieces.
3Frost with Chocolate Frosting, either store bought or Martha Stewarts frosting recipe: 1 cup confectioners sugar, 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 2 Tablespoons milk, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Whisk dry ingredients then using an electric mixer beat 1/2 cup butter until light and fluffy. With mixer on low, gradually add cocoa mixture then gradually beat in 2 Tablespoons of milk and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Beat frosting until light and fluffy about 30 seconds. *good recipe, there is no substitute for real butter!
4I doubled the recipe & mixed two cake mixes at once then baked and topped with fresh raspberries like Martha.
