Step 1: Supplies Are Ready

Put  liners into cupcake tins set aside.

Gather ingredients for batter, such as box mix,  eggs, water,  oil etc....

Follow directions on box mix or recipe.

Have marbles ready to put into tins.

Step 2: Mixing Batter

Mix batter according  to box directions or recipe.

Scoop spoon fulls of batter into each cupcake slot, fill about 2/3 full,
Do not over fill.
If  it is too full the cupcakes will not have a heart shape.

To make the heart shape place the marble between the liner and tin. 

Note: I found that  putting  the marble in  after the batter worked better for me.

Step 3: Baking With Marbles

Bake Cupcakes  at 350 degrees or as per directions on box or recipe, bake  for about 20-25 minutes.

Test for done-ness  - stick a tooth pick in  a cupcake - no batter on stick means "done"
or if it springs back when you lightly touch top of  a cupcake it is done.

  After cupcakes are baked, and while they are still warm push  a chocolate kiss point side down first into the center of each cupcake.

Note: I used Kisses with almonds. For an extra surprise.
