WITH a family of six children, it seems I'm always cooking and on the lookout for variety in menus and special treats to surprise them. This recipe was given to me by a co-worker. The flavor compliment of the raspberry to the chocolate is very pleasing.
Smooth cream cheese inside makes these cupcakes so rich. The classic combination of peanut butter and chocolate chips comes through in every yummy bite. You'll be asked to make them again and again. —Shirley Dunbar, Mojave, California
Our grandkids love these cupcakes and don't believe us when we tell them there are veggies in them! I'm always asked for this recipe, which makes a tasty treat after school, packed in lunches or served as dessert after dinner. —Carole Fraser, North York, Ontario
My husband remembers his mother making "little black cupcakes with caramel icing." I never thought about putting caramel icing on chocolate cupcakes, but boy, was I wrong. His mother passed down this recipe to me. It's to die for! —Cathy Bodkins, Dayton, Virginia
I got the recipe for these moist , filled cupcakes from a dear friend about 25 years ago. I have made them many times for my family and for church functions. They're irresistable. —Vivian Morris, Cleburne, Texas
Good any time of the year, cupcakes make a great get-up-and-go treat on busy summer days. These have been a frosted favorite with family and friends for at least 35 years. They're really popular at bake sales. —Ellen Moore, Springfield, New Hampshire
