Recipe by Mommy Diva

Yummy cupcakes to make that the kid will love! Decorate to fit any theme you need-holidays, b-day parties, showers--you name it! I LOVE the butterscotch (my fav flavor) but chocolate is fabulous as well!!

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!
