Dark chocolate. Cheesecake. Dark chocolate. Cream cheese icing. More dark chocolate. Did I mention these cupcakes have chocolate in them? Oh, sorry! They have chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate.
Here, I spooned an ice cream scoop full of dark chocolate cake batter mix into each cupcake liner. Then, I piped the cream cheese mixture on top of the batter. (8 oz. cream cheese, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 egg, 1 cup chocolate chips)
Here they are, after the icing has been piped on top. As if that wasn’t already an overload of chocolate, I put the leftover melted chocolate in a squeeze bottle and drizzled it on top, along with sprinkling a few mini chocolate chips.
The inside. Ho. Lee. Cow. When I bit into the cupcake and the chocolate started drizzling down over the cream cheese mixture, my knees buckled…literally. May have been a little dramatic…but may not have been! If so, Grammy Award for best actress, please. Thank you. These cupcakes would definitely receive all of the credit in my awards speech.
