i made these and whipped the cream cheese well with the sugar/egg/salt. the end result was OK. i thought the cheese was TOO cheesey and it was just an unusual taste to have in a choc cupcake. i was disappointed b/c i expected a really good cupcake. i dont think i'll be making these again. Read More

I like this recipe better than the other self filled cupcakes on this site because I had just enough filling not a ton left over. I tinted the cream cheese pink for Valentines day and topped with cream cheese frosting. Yummy! Read More

These didn't turn out for me at all. Maybe it was the egg... if I try them again I'll just use cream cheese with some sugar and try it that way. I also added different extracts to these so that made them better... I made half with rum extract and half with peppermint extract. If anything else I love chocolate and peppermint. Read More

These cupcakes are great. I am not a good cupcake maker. They mostly come out dry. NOT these! They were still moist on day 3 when we finished them off. I did not have a cake mix on hand so I used "Devil's Food Cake I" for the cake part. Read More
