Usually what happens is Leticia provides the dinner food and whatever she doesn't have already for it (an ingredient or french bread for pasta) I'll pick up before I get there. But I ALWAYS bring dessert with me. I don't usually have dessert any other time during the week so TNDN is an excuse for me to bake something awesome every week. And with my awesome school schedule (3pm-7pm on Thursdays) I have the entire day to decide what to make. Last time I made Reeses Peanut Butter Blossoms (where you reeses in place of hershey kisses) and those were a hit, of course. Today, i don't know where the whim came from but I decided I wanted to make Cream Cheese filled Devils Food Cupcakes. So, that's what I did!
♥ Cream Cheese filled Devils Food Cupcakes ♥
(I only wanted to make 12 cupcakes so I used a 9oz box of Duncan Hines Devils Food Cupcake mix but you can use a regular 18oz box of cake mix for yours just make sure you double the cream cheese filling)
1 (9oz) Box of Devils Food Cake Mix
2-3 eggs (depending on box recipe)
1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
1/3 c. sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 bag (6oz) chocolate chips
Preheat oven and prepare cake mix according to box directions. Grease and flour cupcake pan or use cupcake liners and and fill cups 2/3 full. Cream softened cream cheese together with sugar. Beat in egg and salt. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop one rounded teaspoon of cheese mixture into each cup. The cake will bake up around the cheese. Bake as directed for cupcakes on the cake mix box. Cool and top w/ powdered sugar.
Enjoy! I know we will tonight :D Tacos, Rice&beans, and Cupcakes!!! ♥
And for those of you who don't know who Leticia is... she is my best friend here in Arizona. Here's a picture of us from last August (guess it's time for a new picture of us lol)
