Ingredients

Filling

1/2 cup sugar
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened

Cupcakes

1 3/4 cups sugar
2/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 1/4 cups water
4 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate, melted, cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Frosting

2 cups whipping cream
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Directions

Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper baking cups into muffin pan cups; set aside.

Combine all filling ingredients in small bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Set aside.

Combine 1 3/4 cups sugar and butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition. Add water, melted chocolate and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Continue beating until well mixed. (Mixture may look curdled.) Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Beat until well mixed.

For each cupcake, spoon 1 rounded tablespoon chocolate mixture into each prepared muffin pan cup; top with 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture. Spoon 1 rounded tablespoon chocolate mixture on top.

Bake 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes. Remove from pans. Cool completely.

Meanwhile, beat whipping cream and powdered sugar in small bowl at high speed, scraping bowl often, until stiff peaks form. Gently stir in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.

Spread about 3 tablespoons frosting onto each cupcake. Store refrigerated.

Recipe Tip

- Refrigerate frosting for up to 4 days. If mixture softens, rewhip to stiff peaks.

- Garnish with Chocolate Filigree Hearts or as desired.
