will it work to put truffles in the center of a cupcake before baking it?

will the cupcakes need to bake longer if a truffle is inserted post bake?

hmmmm? :)

Like a candle truffle or a mushroom truffle?

But I would say no to either. The center is the last part to bake, and that is in the center, so it may not take as long.

A truffle without the hard chocolate coating (like one rolled in cocoa powder) in the center of a cupcake is how they make lava cakes.  I've done it, but I can't remember if I baked it a little longer or not.  You can try searching for 'lava' cakes and see what they say.

That's not how lava cakes are made... lava cakes have very little flour in them, and so the middle never sets up :)

Well, that's what MY lava cake recipe says to do.  Got it out of a Holiday Magazine years ago, so maybe some are done differently

I have put Hershey's chocolate kisses on top of cupcake batter and Hershey's peanut butter cups. I just barely pushed them (not all the way - just a little) and when cooking they sink into the middle of the cupcake. They turned out pretty good. All the kids went crazy over them. Don't know why it would not work for truffles as well!!! Let us know how it works for you!!

Your way definitely sounds tastier than the way I'm used to.  I've always hated lava cakes for tasting like uncooked goo.  Might have to give your version a shot!

It isn't really 'mine', wish I could remember which magazine it was, but it was very tasty.  Done like remnant says, just pushed in a little and the cupcake baked around it.  I seem to recall a blog or website also that talked about inserting all kinds of candy into cupcakes and then baking them.  I distinctly remember a snickers bar or something like that.  Google something like, 'surprise inside cupcakes' and it should come up.  It was really cool.
