Made these easy Double Layer Cheese Cupcakes with my last block of cream cheese that has been sitting in my fridge for quite some time. These almost melt-in-your-mouth cheese cupcakes are light, moist and yummy with some chocolate cream spread on top. Best to serve them chilled to be enjoyed for afternoon tea.
I didn’t make biscuit crumbs or cake base to the cheesecake and they turned out perfect. It’s not complicated to combine the two layers of cream cheese mixture together with one plain and the other with melted chocolate. Whisk up the meringue and fold it into the two cheese mixtures. Then fill the paper cups with chocolate cheese mixture and the plain one on top and pop them into the oven to steam bake for about 40-45 minutes. They can be made ahead for two to three days and kept in the refrigerator before serving.
