Cupcake Surprises

I'm depressed, and what does a plus size momma do when depressed - BAKE.  I pulled out my grandma's Cupcake Surprise "recipe" and went to town.  I don't know why because nothing sounds or tastes good, but alas they are done and it brought a smile to my face thinking about how Grandma would make these just for me growing up (or so she would say, that's the thing about grandma, she always has made each and everyone of us feel special)  These are so yummy, but I recommend making them as mini-cupcakes as they are rich.

Cupcake Surprise (grandma Mary's recipe)

1 box Chocolate Cake Mix - prepared according to directions and divided into cupcake pan(s) [I use Devil's Food]

1 8oz Cream Cheese - softened [I use the 1/3 fat kind just fine]
1/3 cup Granulated Sugar
dash of salt
6 ozs Chocolate Chips [I use about 1/2 cup of the mini when making mini-cupcakes]

Beat the first 3 ingredients then mix in the chips.
Dollop onto the middle of the cake batter. 
Bake according to the package.
Cool & Enjoy!

Oooh! That sounds like a great antidote for depression. Do you use powdered sugar or granulated?

I have a picture of my grandmother framed in my kitchen. She happily spent her whole life in one, and my happiest memories are with her in her little kitchen in the mountains. This looks like such a yummy recipe. I hope the chocolate is just the pick me up you needed. Praying for your heart today. Holly:)

Oh Yummy! Chocolate and cream cheese chase away my blues every time! Until they run out, of course :)
