Brownie Cheesecake Cupcakes

What's Valentines day without some chocolate right? A few weeks ago someone twittered about brownie cheesecake cupcakes. Really? Brownies AND cheesecake in cupcake form? Hell to the yes, sign me up! I went straight to Google to find the recipe that promised such goodness and then as I am prone to do, lost it and forgot about it, until yesterday.....

Thats when I took to Google again, found the recipe and was incredibly excited to discover that I actually had all the ingredients, which honestly doesn't happen all that often. I plugged in the KitchenAid, measured, mixed and baked. I may or may not have had a couple glasses of wine during the process but thats beside the point....about an hour later I had this gloriousness (What, gloriousness isn't a word? Taste these cupcakes and I will dare you to find a better way to describe them)......


Looks like a cute little chocolate cupcake right? Wrong, the gloriousness lies on the inside.....


I am pretty sure cupcakes don't get any better than this. These are sinfully delicious. Try them, you will not be sorry!

Brownie Cheesecake Cupcakes


Cream Cheese Filling
* 3 tablespoons soft butter
* 2 (3 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
* 1/3 cup sugar
* 2 tablespoons flour
* 1 teaspoon vanilla

Brownie Cupcake Batter
* 2 cups sugar
* 1 1/4 cups flour
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 6 tablespoons cocoa
* 4 eggs, beaten
* 3/4 cup vegetable oil
* 1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions
1) For cream cheese filling, mix all ingredients together, blend well and set aside.

2) For brownies, mix all ingredients together until smooth.

3) Reserve 1/2 cup of brownie batter for topping cream cheese mixture.

4) Line 12 muffin cups with paper cupcake liners. (I actually made 18)

5) Fill cups 1/2 full, then spoon cream cheese mixture on top of the brownie batter until the cup is 3/4 full.

6) Top with a scant teaspoon of brownie batter.

7) Place in a preheated 350° oven for 20 to 25 minutes until done.
