      Wonderful! I saved this recipe cause I was looking for a good filling for cupcakes. Well, I made the filling. I ran out of cupcake liners, so I put cake mix into a bundt pan. Added filling and baked. (Took about 15 minutes longer). Then instead of frosting, I sprinkled powdered sugar and chocolate shavings over top. My snooty in-laws loved it! Thank you for the recipe!

      Oh WOW! These cupcakes were divine, but I agree that they were really rich. I put a hershey dark chocolate kiss in the middle of my cupcakes and they turned out great! However, I'd probably cut the sugar by half cos the stuffing was way too sweet for my liking. Thanks for sharing!

      Once I got going on this recipe I realized it was one I had made years ago. What a lovely surprise as I had forgotten all about it. No need to frost these decadent cupcakes. I used a chocolate cakemix as I couldn't find butterscotch and used the whitechocolate/chocolate chip combo but only about 1/2 cup. They are so rich you could do w/or w/o chips. So glad you revivied this recipe for me mommy. Made for January Bev. Tag 08.
