LP's Mom's TNT Stuffed Chocolate Cupcakes

I will start with the cupcake batter and will have to add the filling when I find it. You can't bake them without it but at least you can see if this is a recipe for you! The filling is cream cheese chocolate chip with a simple but decadent chocolate frosting!

Easy Chocolate Cupcakes
1 egg
1/3 cup cocoa
1/2 cup margarine
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sour milk or buttermilk
1 tsp soda
1 cup white sugar
1/2 hot (not boiling) water
1/4 tsp salt

Place ingredients in a bowl in the order given. Don't mix until the last item is added. Beat well. Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes.

That looks pretty easy.
BTW, how high to do fill the cupcake? Do they rise at all?

Sorry, my Mom was never one for details when writing down her recipes. She knew what to do so didn't think to write it! I get that way too.

Yes, they make 12 "regular" or "medium" cupcakes and you fill them "evenly" or about 2/3's full. They do rise. They are fine on their own, but I have to find that filling. It really adds something.

Okay, I gave up looking for the rest of the recipe and found it!

Stuffed Chocolate Cupcakes
One batch of chocolate cupcake batter
8 oz brick of cream cheese
1 egg
1/3 cup sugar
1/8 tsp salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips (mini are best)

Mix the cream cheese, egg, sugar and salt together until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips.

Fill paper cup liners 2/3 full with cake batter. Drop filling by large teaspoons into the centre of each cupcake. Bake at 350 F for 25 minutes.

Note: It has been awhile, but there may be enough filling for 24 cupcakes. Don't over fill them with it or it won't set neatly and the cups may overflow.

Decadent Chocolate Frosting:
Mix 1 package (4 serving) chocolate or chocolate fudge pudding mix with 1 1/2 cups whipping cream and 1/4 cup icing sugar in a deep bowl. Set in fridge for a couple of hours to chill. Beat with hand or stand mixer until fluffy.

Pipe or spread over cooled cupcakes.

Then when you're done can you put a series of white loops across the top?

UMMMMMMMMMM what is the baking temp? Slight typo but if someone only copies this it will be a bit confusing. I am thinking 350F?

Hey, these are NOT Ding Dongs or whatever you call them in the US! Much more sophisticated and healthy!

I was looking over this recipe, getting everything together, and I see it calls for margarine. Can butter be substituted for margarine? I don't know if it makes a difference when baking. I've got "spreadable butter" (butter with canola oil) if that is closer.
