Chocolate Cream Cheese Cupcakes

By on January 5th, 2008 . Filed under: Recipes .

I had 1 package of cream cheese that I needed to use up. It was left over from the cheesecake cupcakes that I made. (That recipe will be posted later) These cupcakes turned out delicious and I decided to spice it up even more by making a chocolate peanut butter frosting.

Chocolate Cupcakes:
1 box of chocolate cake mix (I used devil’s food)
(Follow Instructions on box for cupcakes.)

Cream Cheese Mixture:
1 pkg (8 oz) Cream Cheese, (softened)
1/3 c. sugar
1 egg
1/4 tsp. salt (I’d say a little less than this.. I could have done without the salt)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting:
I had some milk chocolate frosting that I needed to use up so I just mixed it with some peanut butter and it was yummy.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, beat cream cheese. Add sugar, egg, salt. Mix well. Prepare cake mix according to directions on box. Fill paper-lined muffin cups half full with cake batter. Top each with 2 tbs of cream cheese mixture. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Cool 10 minutes and remove from pan.

I sprinkled the top of the cupcakes with powdered sugar.
