Chocolate and cream cheese- in other words, heaven in a muffin! These smelled incredible while baking, and were very good straight out of the oven. They were even better after spending a bit of time in the fridge. I added a little white icing on top and took 'em into work- gone in minutes. Thanks for a great recipe! (hint- don't overmix! I overzealously used my KitchenAide, and these came out a little dry. Hand mix just until moistened!!)

WoooHooo, Eve!! What a great recipe, thanks for sharing! I made them as mini muffins and it yielded about 36. I found the cream cheese mixture easy to work with by squeezing out of a sandwich baggie with a corner snipped off. Baking time as mini's was about 15 minutes. Delightful and I'm looking forward to sharing them at a meeting this afternoon. Thanks again.

These were scrumptious, I did however do a little bit of tinkering with the cheesecake filling. I used icing sugar instead of normal sugar, and a squirt of orange juice and some grated orange rind. It's a keeper.
