UPDATE: MY HUBS' CO-WORKERS LOVED THESE. I'VE ALREADY BEEN ASKED FOR THE RECIPE TWICE! OMG! It's SUPER rare that I award a perfect rating, but I just couldn't resist.... These are da BOMB!!! While I enjoy cheesecake, it's not my dessert of choice (and I don't like darkk chocolate ANYTHING!!!). Knowing this, I set out to make these to share with my neighbors and husband's co-workers and not to eat myself. These looked SOOO yummy, I couldn't resist the urge to sneak a bite. :) Not only was I pleasantly surprised, even my cream cheese-hating hubs liked these! Although delicious, there is one minor downside. These are U-G-L-Y lol! Since I was going to share these, I topped each cupcake with a mildly sweet white chocolate cream cheese frosting (BAKERAMA's carrot cupcake recipe, also on this site). The frosting was perfect! When I make these for myself (there WILL be a repeat!), I will not add any frosting tho.... While I was able to add some visual appeal, these are best eaten as is. NOTES: 1) I was concerned that my chocloate and cream cheese batters were too thin and actually thought I did something wrong. :( Turns out, both slightly thicken as they sit and they bake up BEAUTIFULLY, 2) ONLY FILL YOUR MUFFIN CUPS 1/3 FULL AS DIRECTED (these rise quite a bit!) and 3) Refrigeration definitely helps although I'm not sure it's necessary to refrigerate overnight (a couple hours will do and is a MUST). Thanks SO much for sharing your recipe, SHERIMA! These were simply fantastic! :-)
