Chocolate Filled Cupcakes Recipe just in time for Valentine’s Day!

As a special treat for you; Kristen and her mom show you her favorite cupcakes from childhood! These are special & don’t need icing. The recipe is by a sweet family friend named Deedra Van Dyke of whom has given her permission to reprint and film for YouTube.  Thank you Deedra! Deedra says, “We love to take them camping with us! Just throw them in the cooler and its such a treat!”

The chocolate filled cupcakes have a sweet cream & chocolate chip filling inside. Your friends and families will beg for more!

Also included in the video are two icing recipes for fun. One is a cream cheese made with Oreos blended, perfect for a sock monkey theme! The other is a Butter cream icing with maraschino cherry flavor as well and would be great for Valentine’s Day with candied hearts, a cherry or red crystal sprinkles!

See the recipe below & follow along in the YouTube video:
