Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cupcakes!!

 I totally stole borrowed this picture from Very Best Baking. These beauties are Chocolate, Chocolate Chip, Cheesecake cupcakes!
See the first picture is way better than mine. And mine doesn't have dandruff, it was frozen.
These are a complete pain in the ass to make but the family loves them. And it is a nice frozen treat. It seems if I keep things like this in the house, they don't complain about having food in the house as much. So I'm hoping this will help with the grocery bill.
I changed the original recipe a bit.

2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels, divided 
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 
1(10 oz) package of cream cheese, softened
 1/4 cup granulated sugar 
1 large egg 
1/8 teaspoon salt


PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Paper-line 18 muffin cups.
MICROWAVE 1/2 cup morsels in small, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 45 seconds; STIR. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10 to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Cool to room temperature. COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. 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). 
BEAT cream cheese, sugar, egg and salt in small mixer bowl until creamy. Stir in 1 cup morsels. 
SPOON batter into prepared muffin cups, filling 1/2 full(using a ladle to make life easier). Spoon filling by rounded tablespoon over batter. Spoon remaining batter over filling. Carefully clean your cupcake trays before you bake them. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. While still hot, sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup morsels(I would recommend using more) . Let cool for 5 minutes or until morsels are shiny; spread to frost. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
I would double the recipe. These go super fast.

I made a cherry chocolate cheesecake cupcakes for family and friends before. Problem is my hips love them as much as my lips ;o)

Wow... Printing this off now! Freezing is a good idea, or I'd eat them all immediately.

Lena said...

These are so naughty...

Frances said...

Sound delicious! But way more trouble than I want to go to. LOL! That is a good thing for my waist.

I love to bake but I also love to eat what I bake (common comment theme today :), but this looks like something good to bring to the next potluck at work!

Sonya Ann said...

mama .bonnie-Glad your back! And it's my bum and hips that love these!

Sonya Ann said...

McVal-Double it. Trust me.

Sonya Ann said...

Lena-I hide them in the freezer for when Anna comes home because the boys eat them all.

Sonya Ann said...

Frances-Stick with the Aldi cheesecake. Way easier!!!

Sonya Ann said...

D.Lynn-Yup, I think we all have the same problem!!!

Jill said...
