Company Cupcakes

I love company. It's the Suzy Homemaker in me. I also love to cook for company.

We recently had some friends coming by so I made cupcakes. Yummy, chocolate filled cupcakes! They were super easy and quick to mix up. (Ms. Martha Stewart makes a variation of these but she makes everything from scratch)

When my company arrived, we had a great time frosting and decorating our own cupcakes. The best part, of course, was eating these little gems.

Baker's note: Tossing the chocolate pieces in the dry batter mix keeps them from sinking to the bottom of the cupcake. This same technique can be used with muffins to keep the fruit pieces from sinking.

Here's to you and your culinary adventures, friend! Cheers!

Chocolate Filled Cupcakes
Makes 12

Duncan Hines 12 count cupcake mix, white or confetti
12 Hershey's kisses or similar mini chocolate candies, unwrapped
Frosting and sprinkles

Preheat oven.

Toss chocolate candies in dry cupcake mix. Remove each piece of chocolate and set aside.

Prepare cupcakes according to package directions. Fill 12 muffin tins with half the batter. Place one chocolate candy in each muffin tin. Cover with remaining batter.

Bake according to package directions.

Once slightly cooled, frost and decorate. Enjoy while still warm for a gooey center.
