Since I'm not great in the kitchen, I decided to try something simple because I was eager to use one of these amazing bittersweet chocolate baking bars. My son loves chocolate as well so I figured making some chocolate cheesecake muffins would be best for us to try & work together on. It was a bit of task since our mixer wasn't cooperating with us so I had to opt to use the blender. The cheesecake mix looked so pretty.
Here's the recipe for you to enjoy! (Recipe by www.pillsburybaking.com was inspiration)
1/2 cup sugar
2 (3oz) packages cream cheese softened
1 large egg
1 5.3oz Divine bittersweet baking bar
2 1/2 cups flour
1 2/3 cups sugar
1/4 Divine baking cocoa
1 1/4 cups water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Heat oven to 350 F. Line 24 medium muffin cups with paper baking cups. Beat 1/2 cup sugar and cream cheese in large bowl until smooth. Beat in egg until smooth. Stir in chocolate; set aside.
Beat remaining ingredients in large bowl on high speed 3 minutes. Reserve 1 1/2 cups batter.
Fill each muffin cup 1/3 full. Spoon 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture onto batter in each cup. Top each cup with reserved batter.
Bake 30 -35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool. Store in Refrigerator.
We enjoyed eating the rest of the bars. My favorite was the Milk Chocolate with Toffee & Sea Salt. What a great combo!
