Notes

Recipe courtesy of Nestlé Toll House.

Ingredients

  • 1 package (15.25 to 16.5 ounces) white cake mix
  • Water, vegetable oil and egg white amounts stated on cake mix package
  • 7 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons milk, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup cherry chocolate morsels, such as NESTLE TOLL HOUSE DelightFulls Cherry Flavored Filled Morsels, coarsely chopped, divided

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Paper-line 24 muffin cups.

Prepare cake batter according to package directions. Spoon into prepared muffins cups. Bake as directed or until wooden pick inserted in cupcakes comes out clean. Cool in pans for 5 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Beat powdered sugar, butter, 2 tablespoons milk and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until light and fluffy. Add remaining tablespoon of milk if needed. Remove 1 cup of frosting to small bowl. Stir in 1/2 cup chopped DelightFulls morsels. Spoon filling mixture into pastry bag fitted with large pastry tip or into food storage bag with 1/2-inch snipped from corner of bag.

Cut a 1-inch circle 1-inch deep with sharp knife from each cupcake. Carefully remove cake pieces and save for another use such as crumbling over ice cream. Pipe filling mixture into each cupcake. Filling should be level with top of cupcake.

Frost cupcakes with remaining frosting in bowl. Sprinkle cupcakes with remaining 1/2 cup chopped DelightFulls morsels.

Tip: If short on time, here is another frosting to try in place of one above. Gently mix together 1 container (16 ounces) prepared cream cheese frosting and 1 1/2 cups thawed whipped topping in large bowl. Divide and use as stated above.

Make sure you have all the recipes you are going to make ahead of time. Compile your grocery list from those recipes a week in advance. Make sure you allot enough time for the turkey to defrost.

Valentine Cooking Tip

Balance the amount of dishes prepared ahead and those put together last minute – serve cold dishes made in advance as well as items straight from the stove.
