We love this cupcake recipe, my sister got the recipe from her mother-in-law. Frosting is optional, but the filling is sweet enough. We don't use frosting. Made for every birthday in our family, mostly to give out to friends and neighbors. I have used yellow cake mix, but doesn't give the desired look.

How to Make Chocolate mystery cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Make cupcakes as directed on package. Fill cupcakes half full. Mix remaining ingredients. Drop 1 Tablespoon in each cupcake. Bake as directed on package.
  2. I use paper liners in my cupcake pans, since I usually give them as gifts. You really don't have to, but does keep the moisture in the cupcake.
