8 ounces softened cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
red food coloring or frosting tint
6 ounces white chocolate chunks
1 recipe homemade or boxed cake batter
Preheat the oven to the specified temperature in your cupcake
recipe. Line muffin tins with foil or paper liners.
Mix together the filling before mixing together the batter. Beat the
egg in a medium bowl. Beat in the softened cream cheese and mix
until smooth. Add the sugar and mix until smooth. Add the coloring
until the desired color is reached. Make the color several shades
darker than the desired end result as the color will lighten as it
bakes. Fold in the white chocolate chunks.
Prepare the cupcake batter. Fill the cups 2/3 full with the cake
batter. Place about 1½ teaspoonsful of the filling in the center of
each cupcake. Bake, cool, and frost as directed in the cupcake
