These wonderful cupcakes combine chocolate cake with chocolate chip cheesecake. They have been in our family for years and are always a BIG hit when brought to a function!

"These cupcakes were very easy to make! I'm not into baking so when homemade cupcakes turn out this good for me, it's definitely a recipe to keep! Simple enough to involve the children, too!"

Fantastic filled cupcakes! These turned out very even but oftentimes the cheesecake is lopsided but amazing. photo by CarolaGirl01 CarolaGirl01

Only thing I do different is make a package of German chocolate cake mix instead of making it from scratch & use 12 oz of chocolate chips in the mix. Always a huge hit when I make them.
