Hostess Cupcakes

Recipe From: Taste Buds
These were tasty and easy...just like Hostess!
1 devil's food cake mix


8 Tbsp butter (room temp)
1 1/2 cups marshmallow cream
1/2 tsp vanilla
granulated sugar (to taste)

2 big Hershey bars (or 8 reg size)
1 12oz pkg semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 bar of wax (melt in a rinsed out soup can inside a pan with 1-2 in water)

Make cupcakes according to pkg directions (adding 1/4 tsp vanilla; if desired) and bake in well greased, unlined pans. Let cool completely. For filling mix butter and marshmallow cream until fluffy. Add vanilla and a little sugar to desired taste. With a piping bag squirt a small amount of filling up into the bottom of each cupcake.
Melt chocolate together. Melt wax separately. Gradually add wax to melted chocolate, stirring constantly. Dip tops of cupcakes into the chocolate and set aside until firm. With a small piping tip decorate tops of cupcakes with remaining filling.
