Chocolate Cheesecake Cupcakes

Chocolate Cheesecake CupcakesA dollop of cheesecake filling hides in each of these rich chocolate cupcakes. Topped with melted chocolate chips, try adding candied violets or colored sprinkles for a festive presentation.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 (12-ounce) package or 2 cups NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels - divided use
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup water
2 (3-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/8 teaspoon salt

  2. Microwave 1/2 cup morsels in small, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 45 seconds; stir. Microwave an additional 10 to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth; cool to room temperature.
  3. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl.
  4. Beat sugar, oil, egg and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until blended. Beat in melted chocolate; gradually beat in flour mixture alternately with water (batter will be thin).
  5. Beat cream cheese, sugar, egg and salt in small mixer bowl until creamy. Stir in 1 cup morsels.
  6. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling 1/2 full. Spoon filling by rounded tablespoon over batter. Spoon remaining batter over filling.
