Chocolate Cupcakes:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup melted milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk

Cheesecake Filling:

  • 8 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Chocolate Ganache:

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

  • In a large bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, egg, and 1/4 cup sugar. Set aside.

  • In a separate bowl, combine the unsalted softened butter, brown sugar, 1/2 cup sugar, vanilla extract, cooled melted chocolate, sour cream, and eggs.
  • Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture alternating with the buttermilk. Starting with the flour and ending with the flour.
  • Using an ice-cream scoop, scoop the batter evenly into your muffin tin, about 1/4 of the way.
