Surprise your Valentine by creating stroopwafel cupcakes! Stroopwafels are a Dutch treat made from two thin layers of crisp waffle-like cookies joined by a cinnamon-flavored caramel filling. Our stroopwafel cupcakes recipe uses Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ Devil's Food Cake Mix, a homemade cream cheese frosting and dipped mini Dutch stroopwafels. The little cookies are naturally adorable, but when dipped in chocolate and decorated with pink sprinkles, they’re sure to capture anyone’s heart.

    Meanwhile, in small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips and shortening uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. If necessary, continue microwaving and stirring in 15-second intervals until melted and smooth. Dip half of each stroopwafel into chocolate. Place on parchment-covered cookie sheet.

    In large bowl, beat cream cheese, butter, vanilla and 1 teaspoon of the milk with electric mixer on high speed until fluffy. Reduce speed to low; gradually add powdered sugar. Increase speed to medium, beating until smooth and fluffy. If frosting is too thick, add more milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency.

    Place frosting in large resealable freezer bag. Cut off one bottom corner to make 1-inch opening. Pipe frosting in circular motion over cupcakes. Top with a stroopwafel. Store covered in refrigerator.
