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.
"My mom and I first tried these moist chocolaty cupcakes at her health club's annual taste test," notes Sara Zignego of Hartford, Wisconsin. "Not only are these treats light and delicious, they're easy to make!
I didn't have any luck finding a peanut butter-filled chocolate cupcake (my two favorite flavors), so I made my favorite chocolate cupcake recipe and experimented with the filling until I found one I liked. —Julie Small, Claremont, New Hampshire
Sweeten any meal with these fun, frosted chocolate cupcakes that take just minutes to make. The finger-licking flavor packs far fewer calories and fat than traditional desserts! —MANDY RIVERS, LEXINGTON, SOUTH CAROLINA
These cupcakes don't taste light at all. In fact, my guests are never satisfied with just one. The meringue-like tops make them different, but the chocolate and coconut make them memorable.

You only need a few baking staples to throw together these gooey delights. Boxed cake mix and a can of frosting make them fast, but caramel, walnuts and chocolate chips tucked inside make them memorable. We like them with ice cream. —Bev Spain, Belleville, Ohio
