Double Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins – Rich, chocolate cream cheese muffins with a layer of sweetened cream cheese for a light and tender breakfast or even dessert.
I think that every day should involve chocolate. And if you can have it for breakfast, that is even better! Chocolate Chip Muffins are in my freezer at all times for my son to have for breakfast.
My favorite are Chocolate Oatmeal Banana Blender Muffins, because you get all the flavor of chocolate, but they are healthy, so I don’t have to feel as guilty about them.
My good friend Jocelyn from Inside BruCrew Life just came out with a new cookbook. And it is all about cheesecake! It is called Cheesecake Love. Traditional cheesecakes, no bake cheesecakes, cheesecake pies and more! I have already made 2 things from the book, and my son and husband have bookmarked many more!
Double chocolate cheesecake muffins were calling to me the second I opened the book. Muffins are just kind of one of my favorite things. So I knew I had to make them.
And anything with double chocolate in the name, has to be good! So I am pretty sure I made these muffins the day the book arrived. My freezer was running low, so it was perfect timing.
The muffins have a chocolate base with chocolate chips mixed in. Then you make a quick cheesecake layer that you spoon over the muffin base. They bake up so soft and tender. They are not overly sweet, which I loved. Pretty sure you are supposed to let them cool first, but they smelled so good I couldn’t wait.
Warm melty chocolate just makes life better. Every morning my son would warm them up as well, before he ate them. This will not be the last time I make them, that is for sure! Double Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins for the win!
I also made the Funfetti Cheesecake Pie from Jocelyn’s book, and it was so good. My family raved about it, and it disappeared so fast it was kind of scary. I can’t wait to try more recipes.
I am pretty sure we are going to be eating a lot of cheesecake over the holidays this year! If you have a cheesecake loving person in your life, Cheesecake Love would make a great gift for them this year!
