A different taste in cupcakes with cream cheese filling. Can be changed to be topical. For example, for St. Patrick's day, you can make your topping green using green food colouring with white chocolates or on Valentines day, you can add red food colouring with white chocolates for the topping. Mint flavored chocolates give it a nice scent too.

When you use packaged cake mix, it is easy but if you feel ambitious, you can make your own cake for the base as well. This recipe makes 12 large cupcakes (or 24 small).

1 (520 gr) package chocolate cake mix

Cream Cheese filling:

250 gr. cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1/8 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon flour
1 teaspoon corn starch

  • 3 tablespoons mint flavoured chocolate chips
    Prepare the cake mix according to package instructions. This usually requires 2-3 eggs, oil and water.
  • Line a cupcake pan with paper cupcake holders
  • Fill 2/3 of the cupcake holder with cake batter
  • Prepare the filling by mixing all of the ingredients together
  • Spoon 1 tablespoon of cream cheese filling in each of the cupcakes. If you choose, you can add another spoonful of cake batter on top but that is not necessary because the cake rises over the cream cheese filling
  • Cook at 350 for 25 to 35 minutes. You can test if it is ready by sticking a wooden skewer or a toothpick in the middle of the cupcake. If it comes out clean, they are ready
  • Set aside to cool
  • Prepare topping by combining all (except chocolates) in a small pot. Make sure everything is blended well. Cooking over a low heat until it thickens remove from heat. Add in the chocolate chips and let them melt by mixing it continually.
  • Spoon the topping over the cupcakes and let cool completely before serving
