lightning chocolate raspberry cupcakes
If you don’t have time to bake from scratch, here’s a great way to transform a store-bought cake mix into something special.
- 1 package chocolate cake mix
- 1 jar raspberry preserves
- 1 can chocolate or vanilla icing
- Fresh raspberries for garnish
Line cupcake tins with paper or aluminum-foil cupcake holders, and prepare cupcakes according to package instructions.
Allow baked cupcakes to cool, and cut a funnel-shaped piece of cake out of the top of each, reserving the funnels. Then, fill the funnel hole with the raspberry preserves, replace the funnels atop the cupcakes, and ice with chocolate or vanilla icing. Garnish each cupcake with a fresh raspberry.
