I have not tried this recipe. I got my copy from a community cookbook. My copy is slightly different. My copy calls for 8oz chocolate chips for the filling. For the cakes it calls for 1/2 tsp salt. The rest is the same. Bake time is slightly different it calls to bake these for 20 minutes. Thanks for posting. Christine (internetnut)

These cupcakes are addicting. You can't just eat one! I got this recipe from Susan Meldelson, owner/operator of the Lazy Gourmet in Vancouver. I highly recommend this recipe

This recipe is just like the chocolate cream cheese muffins that are sold at Starbucks. BUT make these and take them to Starbucks to have with your coffee because these are BETTER. The bakery who makes these needs this recipe instead, theirs are a lousy way to spend $1.95
