I have been making these for over 30 years. They are wonderful and always a huge hit. I have never had them fail me. I make them in a regular size cupcake and always a double batch!

I teach childbirth classes, and the last class of every series is a reunion where former students can share their birth stories and show off their babies to current students. These were a huge hit with everyone at class last week. One dad-to-be kept passing the tray around and exclaiming how good they were. My family love them as well. Definitely a keeper!

Very nice cupcakes. I made a cream cheese frosting to put on top, makes them look a lot better.

Been making these for years.... add miniature choc chips to the cream cheese center. People always ask where you bought them!
