    Derishous! But I would definitely recommend filling the cups 1/3 full, adding the cream cheese filling, and then adding another third of the batter. That way, all the filling is covered and you can control how much is in the cup.

    Very, very rich. It cured my chocolate cravings in about one bite. I didn't leave enough chocolate batter to cover the cream cheese so some of them dried out on the top. But that was my fault. It took me 25 minutes to bake and about 10 minutes prep.

    Absolutely delicious. compliments galore!thanks so much for this awesome recipe!(Had to substitute cream cheese whipped product for cream cheese and they still came out perfectly fluffy.)

    These are delicious, and so simple! I followed the recipe exactly, baking them for 35 minutes, and they came out perfectly! The cupcakes have a brownie-like consistency. With me sweeter is usually better. But with the cream cheese filling, they certainly don't need frosting or anything else. They are perfect just as they are. Thank you for a recipe that will be made often in my house.

    I followed this recipe for the filling, but used premade chocolate cake mix because I had limited time. I took these to friends in New Orleans, and they loved them - none were allowed to come back with me : ) So this is a terrific recipe, thank you. As an alternative to icing, I sprinkled cinnamon sugar on the top after baking.
