Cheesecake Cupcakes with Chocolate Swirls

mini cheesecake cupcakesBelieve me or not, I have discovered mini cheesecake cupcakes only three or four  months ago. Don’t get me wrong, I knew that they exist. I saw many beautiful images and recipes on internet (see this famous raspberry swirl cheesecake cupcakes by Annie’s Eats)  but I had never tried to make them! And when I finally decided to make them this was real revelation for me and my husband! We were absolutely amazed by the taste of these delicious cheesecake treat. This yummy cupcakes has become one of our favorite desserts ever! So here is my ordinary recipe for mini cheesecake cupcakes with chocolate swirls! I hope you’ll enjoy.
