Surprise! Cream-Filled Cupcakes

Nothing better than biting into a moist chocolate cupcake and being surprised by a sweet creamy filling! Unless you're my husband, who doesn't like frosting. . . This is an adaptation of my MIL's recipe for Ho Ho Cupcakes. It is mostly from scratch, but can be simplified by substituting a can of your favorite prepared frosting for the tops of the cupcakes. These are a huge hit at my childrens’ birthday parties, with the adults as well as the kids!
