Oozy Orange Cupcakes
8 oz Cream cheese; softened
1/3 c Sugar
Yellow and red food coloring
6 oz Chocolate chips
3 c Flour
2 c Sugar
1/2 c Cocoa
2 ts Baking soda
1/2 ts Salt
2 c Water
1/2 c Plus 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tb Cider vinegar
2 ts Vanilla
Yellow & Red food coloring
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line cupcake baking pans with paper cupcake liners or spray with vegetable spray.
In small mixing bowl, use electric mixer to combine cream cheese, egg and sugar. Blend in 2 drops yellow food coloring and 1 drop red food coloring, adding more coloring if necessary to reach desired shade.
Use mixing spoon to stir in chocolate chips; set filling aside.
In large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt; set aside.
In a second small mixing bowl, combine water, vegetable oil, vinegar and vanilla. Add contents of small mixing bowl to large mixing bowl and stir with mixing spoon to combine.
Using a tablespoon, fill cupcake liners half full with cupcake batter, then place 1 teaspoon filling at center of each. As cupcake bakes, the batter will rise to surround the filling.
Place pans in oven; bake approximately 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centre of one of the cupcakes comes out clean.
For the Frosting:
Make your favorite frosting and add a few drops of yellow and red food coloring.
This cupcake has a double frosting whammy: you've got the stuff on the top of the cupcakes and then you've got the stuff that oozes out of the middle (if you don't want it quite so sweet, just leave off the frosting on the top; maybe place a gummy worm on the top of each cupcake instead).
