Gluten Free Chocolate Cream Filled Cupcakes

This is the ultimate Valentine's treat.  I was super excited when I made these yesterday to serve at a meeting at our house.  They not only looked amazing...they tasted amazing.  The cake was so fluffy and the chocolate cream filling was such a nice surprise bite in the middle...not to mention the frosting, which I rimmed with crushed Heath bar (I've really been into using Heath in my desserts these days!  I just love the crunch it brings) and chocolate sprinkles.  You just have to make these Gluten Free Chocolate Cream Filled Cupcakes.  I guarantee you will wow anyone you serve them to.

Recipe from:  Goodies Gone Gluten Free


Recipe for Hersey's One Bowl Chocolate Cake


1 cup whipped chocolate frosting (gluten free - I used Duncan Hines 14 oz which was enough for the frosting and the filling.)
1/2 cup marshmallow fluff (or creme)


1 cup whipped chocolate frosting (gluten free - I used Duncan Hines)
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
2 tsp. corn syrup
2 crushed Heath Bars or 1/2 cups sprinkles or topping of choice

Make cake recipe according to directions for cupcakes. For the filling, mix together the frosting and marshmallow fluff in a small bowl and put into a gallon sized zip bag. When the cupcakes are completely cool, using the end of a wooden spoon make a hole in the center of the cupcake, almost to the bottom, wiggling as you go to make the hole about 1/2 inch wide.  Cut a 3/4 inch corner off of the frosting filled bag and insert into the center hole of the cupcake, squeezing bag until the center of the cupcake is filled with filling.

In a microwave safe bowl, heat the frosting ingredients (except for the Heath Bar or sprinkles) for 30 seconds until smooth and completely melted.  Stir and heat an additional 15 seconds if needed. Dip tops of cupcake into melted frosting.  Immediately rim sides of cupcakes with Heath Bar, sprinkles or desired topping.  Let cupcakes set up.  The frosting will set up smooth and somewhat solid on top, like a ganache.

I added cute little bows to the cupcake liners and topped the cupcakes with candy hearts.

Look at that fluffy cake and cream filling!  Oh yum!

They really are pretty, aren't they?
