This weekend was my girls weekend at the lakehouse. We watch trashy tv, work on crafts, order out and relax a whole lot.
Last time during girl’s weekend instead of crafting I baked and baked. Then I photographed my baked goods and wrote posts for the blog.
This time I made Chocolate Cheesecake Cupcakes. Ya know, we all have our “thing” that we work on during girl’s weekend.
This year I didn’t plan on making anything during the weekend, but when I arrived I took some heat that I wasn’t baking anything.
So, I quickly found a recipe and headed to the store.
Saturday night after dinner I whipped up these cupcakes and they were fantastic.
Let’s just say that the girls couldn’t eat just one and I didn’t bring any home with me.
If you like cheesecake you’re definitely going to want to try these cupcakes. They are the perfect blend of chocolate and cheesecake and one you’ll want to make again and again.
