These cupcakes were very good, especially if you want something chocolate, but don't want to bother with frosting. Or maybe you can't decide between cake and cheesecake? Perfect compromise! Being that these are individual cupcakes and don't have frosting they make a great take-along for a party or get together - less mess. I ended up with lots of cream cheese filling left over, so I made another batch of cake batter and ended up with 26 standard size cupcakes with some of them running over the edges onto the pan a little, so in hindsight I could have had closer to 30 cupcakes. I made one batch of cake batter with regular cocoa powder and one with dutch process, either works fine, I liked the dutch process a little better, the chocolate flavor was a little deeper. Also, I refrigerated the cupcakes overnight and think they were better the next day.
*As a note, I wasn't sure how much filling to add to each cupcake, but since the recipe makes so much filling, feel free to be generous with it.
