Truly a great recipe! My daughter "claimed" this recipe after I made it the first time. She loved them, and makes them for friends, co-workers, get-togethers. Everyone now asks her to make "the cupcakes" :)

These are really good! The chocolate and cream cheese are so yummy together. Kind of like a little chocolate cheeesecakey thing! Very easy to make and delicious!

These are very nice (a little on the sweet side) and make a nice addition to dessert/potluck repertoire.
