    My family loves these! I've added a half cup of peanut butter to the cream cheese filling to change it up. Awesome alternative.

    I added 2 eggs, then finished the recipe as usual. I frosted them with your one bowl buttercream chocolate frosting recipe. They were a huge hit. Very moist.

    I have made these for years and years, but I use a box cake mix. The filling is the same and absolutely delicous!
