Chocolate and Cheesecake Cupcakes

This past Wednesday I was in charge of bringing dessert to my Bible study group. As some of you might have noticed there aren't desserts on my blog for one very simple reason, MY OVEN SUCKS!

Seriously. It's a gas oven and it will forever burn anything I try to bake! I have some fabulous dessert recipes that  I wish I could share but every time I try making them to take pictures for on here I end up burning it! As a side note, this wasn't always the case, though I don't like baking, at home I was decent at it.

Anyways, I couldn't decide what to make, so I looked in my pantry and saw I had 2 boxes of Betty Crocker's Super Moist Triple Chocolate Fudge cake mix. So I figured if I mess up the first batch of cupcakes, I'll adjust the temperature and just redo them with the second box mix.

But I felt super lame bringing box mix cupcakes. How boring.... So I thought to myself, "hmmm cheesecake sounds good." So I tried making Cheesecake topped Chocolate Cupcakes! They did not turn out how I was thinking they would......THEY WERE BETTER! I'm not going to lie I ate one night. These are officially on my list of favorite quick and easy desserts!

1 Box of Betty Crocker Super Moist, Triple Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix
(and all the ingredients on the back of the box)

Cheesecake Mixture Ingredients:
8oz Softened Cream Cheese
2 cups of Powdered Sugar
2 eggs
Chocolate Chips (optional)

Preheat your oven to 350*. Mix your cake mix according to the back of the box. In a separate bowl mix together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and eggs.

Put cupcake liners into your cupcake pan and fill each one halfway with the chocolate cake mix. Then add the cheesecake mixture on top until the cupcake liner is 3/4 full. Add a few chocolate chips on top!

Bake them for about 15-20 minutes depending on your oven and check them with a toothpick to make sure they are done!

Now you might be dissapionted like I was when you see that there is no cheesecake on the top, BUT take a bite!! The cheesecake ended up baking into the middle like a filling! I didn't even end up using icing on them because I thought they were yummy just the way they are!

Sorry the pictures aren't as good as they normally are, I was completely prepared for these to fail so I didn't really take any pictures! Oops. But I will be making these again so I'll add some prettier pictures later!


  1. How many cupcakes did this recipe make?! about 22-24 like a normal cake mix box would?!
    Thank you!
