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.
Chocolate and orange are perfect together in these fudgy morsels. To give them a moist brownie-like texture, I add mayonnaise. The cupcakes taste even better when served with a scoop of homemade ice cream.
I love food served with an unexpected twist, like these cupcakes with a creamy chocolate truffle center. My kids love to "help" make them, but I have to be sure to have enough truffles saved to actually fill the cupcakes! —Amanda Noll, Spanaway, Washington
