These cupcakes are not only delicious, but travel very well. I made them many times when my children were in school and never had the mess I always did with "iced" cakes.

How to Make Self-Filled Cupcakes


  • 1Mix cake mix according to package directions. Fill paper cups (I use the cups that have paper on the inside and foil on the outside) 1/2 to 2/3 full.
  • 2In another bowl, cream the cheese with the sugar, egg and salt and then fold in the chocolate pieces. Drop a heaping teaspoon of the cream mixture in the middle of each cupcake.
  • 3Bake at 375 degrees for approximately 25 minutes.
