Yes, these cupcakes look like those famous spotted dogs. The chocolate cake has a hidden creamy filling and chocolate chip “spots.” Kids love them!
Jan 16, 2018

Ingredients

  • 6 oz (170 g) cream cheese, softened (from 8-oz/250 g package)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups miniature or regular semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ devil's food cake mix
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 container Betty Crocker™ Creamy Deluxe™ vanilla frosting

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and 1 egg with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Stir in 1 cup of the chocolate chips; set aside.
  • 3
    In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil and 3 eggs on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Divide batter among muffin cups (1/4 cup in each). Top each with 1 heaping teaspoon cream cheese mixture.
  • 4
    Bake 21 to 27 minutes or until tops spring back when touched lightly. Cool in pans 10 minutes. Remove from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 5
    Frost with frosting. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Store loosely covered in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    How about a Dalmatian-themed party? Serve cupcakes with chocolate chip ice cream, play “pin the spot on the dog,” and send kids home with a “doggie bag” full of dog-themed treats and prizes.
  • Tip 2
    Wrap individual cupcakes tightly in plastic wrap, and include in lunch boxes for an extra-special lunchtime treat!
  • Tip 3
    If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
