Originally I made the Surprise Prize Cupcakes for the kids I work with. They were so good that I made them for a party and everyone loved them! This recipe is so clever, but still really simple. If you're looking for a way to impress people with your baking skills I recommend these cupcakes!


I love making these cupcakes. They are very quick and easy and also have a wonderful surprise inside. Better than plain cupcakes. I favorite in my home!


I have made these cupcakes before and my friends at work love them. They are out of this world!! They rock!! Will be making them again.


This recipe is wonderful!! It is so easy to make and tastes delicious. I've started baking every Sunday as a family treat and this one is a hit. I used chocolate devil's food cake and classic chocolate frosting. Chocolate lovers will find this hits the spot. I like a little texture in cupcakes so the cookie and mini chips just enhanced what was already a great recipe. I will make this again.


I make these for my family and they just cant get enough. I'm not allowed to make cupcakes any other way now!


You can't go wrong with this recipe - kids & adults will love the cookie surprise on the inside.


These were so easy to make, and such a delicious treat! My family loved these - we will definitely make them again!
