Inside-Out Cupcakes Recipe – Frosting on the INSIDE!

Sharing is caring!

These yummy cupcakes are perfect for packing in lunches, taking on car trips, bringing to a picnic…or basically for anyplace where traditional cupcakes with soft gooey frosting on top could end up being a mess.  These have a fun surprise in the MIDDLE instead!

Yellow Cake Mix
(additional ingredients as listed on cake mix box)
8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line 24 muffin tins with cupcake papers.  Prepare cake mix as directed on box.  Fill liners 1/2 full with batter.  In a small bowl, mix together cream cheese, egg and sugar until smooth.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Drop appx 1 Tbsp of cream cheese mixture onto each of the half-filled cupcake liners.  Bake for 20 minutes or until tops are golden and they spring back when lightly touched.




  1. These would be great for taking to lunch or to get-togethers.

  2. Great idea to fill them. Could even put a chunk of a candy bar in there.
