I found a recipe for Chocolate Surprise Cupcakes -- also known as Black Bottom Cupcakes. I say I found this recipe...I tried to follow this recipe to the best of my ability. However, I am unable to follow recipes without veering off-course, or making adds or changes.

Since baking is a science that requires rigor and precision, I started with Pamela's (wheat-free, gluten-free and dairy-free) Chocolate Cake Mix as a base for these Chocolate Surprise cupcakes. This was a wise move. I then proceeded to un-non-dairy this mix, by swirling a cream cheese-based ribbon of ingredients through it.

And, guilding the lilly, I carefully pressed a Sweet Earth Chocolates Classic Truffle into the top of the still warm cupcake before eating it. Double surprise.

Today was Day #6 of Chocolate (and) Surprise Theme Week.
