"My source for this recipe is foodlovers They acknowledged Helen Jackson & described her as "an Auckland-based foodie who teaches cooking classes, catering & designing recipes." She certainly did herself proud w/this one! Like a prior recipe, it oddly uses a mix of metric & US units of measurement. Rather than fully convert to one or the other, I entered it as written. Enjoy!"

This was a very tasty recipe twisted. We enjoyed the chocolate flavor very much. The cream cheese is a wonderful surprise and helps keep the cupcake moist. I served it with a buttercream glaze and candy pastilles. Thank you for sharing another winner. Made FYC tag game.
