Strawberry Surprise Cupcakes

 Strawberry Surprise Cupcakes

Okay, I'll admit it. This might be one of my favorite go to dessert recipes when I need something quick and simple but with tons of goodness.  They are fun to make too and your friends and family will go on and on about them!  Love this recipe! 

Strawberry Surprise Cupcakes

1 box yellow cake mix plus the ingredients it calls for to prepare it
1 lb fresh strawberries
2 cups (1 pint) heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease your muffin tins or spray with non-stick spray.  

Mix cake mix as instructed on package and fill each muffin cup to the top. Bake at 350 degrees until tester inserted in center comes out clean.

While cupcakes are baking, finely chop five to seven strawberries until they are almost a pulp and set aside.  Then cut the tops off a dozen whole berries and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl,  beat the whipping cream, chopped strawberries, and powdered sugar until the mixture forms stiff peaks. Set aside.

Remove cupcakes from oven and allow them to cool in muffin tin for about 10 minutes before inverting them onto cooling rack. completely cool. 

When cupcakes are completely cool,  cut a hole in each one about the width of a quarter (don't go to the bottom of the cupcake). 

Press a strawberry, pointed side down into each cupcake.

Finally, put your whipped cream in a piping bag and frost the tops.

Slice the cupcake and see your surprise!  

Garnish with a sliced strawberry and enjoy!
