Chocolate Cheesecake Cup Cake

I am so loving playing with cups!  My boys love it too.  They get to eat all the fun!  These are the perfect size for individual servings.  Everyone gets to create their own cakes!  I even refrigerated leftover cake mix last night and baked more today.  Try these with whatever you have on hand to fill them with.  I tried cheesecake in one and it was great.  The plain one was wonderful….so moist!  Add chocolate chips, m&m’s, nuts, preserves, caramel….you get it, don’t you?  I’ll see you ’round the microwave!
