    vitalev's Note:

    Got this from the Dannon website. Resist the temptation to devour these the first day.. they get better with age (tightly sealed, of course). Topping is a bit tangy, can definitely tell it is yogurt and not cheesecake... I am open to suggestions on how to doctor it up! More sugar maybe, or some vanilla yogurt?

    My Private Note


    Serves: 12



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Prepare yogurt cheese: Spoon 1 1/2 cups yogurt into a strainer or sieve lined with cheesecloth or coffee filter. Place a bowl under strainer to catch liquid (whey). Cover and refrigerate 12 hours. Discard liquid.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven 350°F.
    3. 3
      Prepare topping: In medium bowl, whisk together yogurt cheese, confectioner's sugar and 1 egg until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Set aside.
    4. 4
      In large bowl, combine flour, granulated sugar, cocoa and coffee granules. In a separate medium bowl, combine remaining 3/4 cup yogurt, oil, remaining egg and vanilla. Mix well. Pour over dry ingredients and mix on low speed in electric mixer until just combined or ingredients are moistened.
    5. 5
      Spray 12-cup muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray or line with foil muffin cups. Spoon batter evenly into muffin cups. Make a slight indentation in each. Spoon yogurt mixture over batter, dividing evenly (It makes a tad too much topping -- I just divided it as well as I could and licked/pitched the rest :)).
    6. 6
      Bake 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on rack for 5 minutes, then remove from tins to completely cool.

      I LOVE these cupcakes! I put them in the refrigerator which really gave the cheesecake great texture. They melt in your mouth. I am making some more today! The Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Muffins are a great alternative to high fat, high calorie desserts. I have already suggested the recipe to friends.

      These aren't bad, but they kind of taste "healthy" if you know what I mean. The topping is tangy, like plain yogurt, even though I add 2/3 cup powdered sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla. I think I'll try vanilla yogurt next time and see how it does. I don't taste the espresso powder at all and will either double it next time or omit it all together. I also found these a little dry so will likely add another egg and a little more oil. This is an interesting cupcake and I plan to make it again and see if I can get it to work better. I'll update my review then
