These days, cupcakes are the dessert that’s all the rage. Cupcake food trucks are cropping up everywhere, there are television shows built around baking cupcakes, and New York City has even gotten its first cupcake vending machine. Of course, cupcakes are delicious on their own, but if you want to add another layer of tasty goodness, why not try making stuffed cupcakes? Stuffed cupcakes can be a daunting project to take on in the kitchen, but hopefully this post will help you get started. Check out these seven stuffed cupcake recipes!

Cream Cheese Stuffed Cupcake

Cheesecake, a classic dessert, is combined with your mother’s delicious cupcakes in this stuffed cupcake recipe. The recipe calls for chocolate cupcakes and, though these particular directions tell you to make cupcakes from scratch, I’m sure a cupcake mix will do fine. The filling consists of cream cheese and white chocolate, and it’s all topped off with a cream cheese frosting and some raspberry sauce.

Salted Caramel Stuffed Cupcake

At first glance, it might seem like a strange combination: salt and caramel? Trust me, it’s a delicious mixture of sweet and salty that will add a punch to your otherwise regular cupcake. This recipe actually calls for brown sugar cupcakes, which are already pretty interesting. When you add in the caramel filling, they become positively delicious. The salted caramel theme is even incorporated into the frosting. These are sure to be a hit with those who have a sweet tooth and also appreciate a salty snack.

The cupcake can be your opportunity to personalize and mix and match the flavors you like best. Choose your favorite flavor of ice cream and then pick a complementary cupcake to fill. For this recipe, you’ll need to cook the cupcakes, of course, then fill them with your ice cream and freeze them so you don’t have a soggy mess on your hands!
