Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Cheesecake Cupcakes



So much dark chocolate in addition to pumpkin recently! I tin’t assistance it. Such a proficient combo. I order that most pretty much everything, merely it really is. And these are and so cute as well as festive! Perfect for Halloween or fall or whatsoever you feel like celebrating! Make these today too celebrate it beingness Tuesday because why non? They are filled with the about delicious pumpkin cheesecake filling too topped alongside a fresh pumpkin cream cheese marshmallow buttercream. Too practiced.

They do necessitate several steps, simply they aren’t as well high maintenance. It’second totally worth it anyway.


I was super happy alongside this batter too it turned out super moist from the buttermilk and Greek yogurt. I LOVE baking with Greek yogurt for that argue.



It was really hard not to swallow alll of this filling with a spoon. You’ll encounter.


My technique for filling cupcakes is to cutting out a little cone shaped chunk out of the center alongside a paring knife, as well as pipage in the filling. I find it to live the easiest, to the lowest degree messy style.


I as well topped them amongst shaved nighttime chocolate. My fav.

Makes near 14 cupcakes

For the cupcakes:

ane stick butter, melted too cooled

i i/ii c. all purpose flour

ane/two c. dark cocoa powder (I used Hershey’second Special Dark)

1 tsp. baking soda

i/ii tsp. baking pulverisation

one/ii tsp. salt

ane/ii tsp. espresso pulverisation

1 c. granulated carbohydrate

i big egg

i/four c. patently Greek yogurt (I used 0%)

i tsp. vanilla extract

one i/2 c. buttermilk

nighttime chocolate bar for shaving

For the filling:

four oz. cream cheese, at room temp.

ane/four c. canned pumpkin

one tsp. vanilla

one/iv tsp. pumpkin pie spice

pinch of table salt

i/iii c. + two T. powdered carbohydrate

For the buttercream:

one/ii c. unsalted butter, softened

iv oz. cream cheese, at room temperature

one/ii c. marshmallow fluff

i/four c. canned pumpkin

one/4 tsp. cinnamon

ane/iv tsp. pumpkin pie spice

2 i/two c. powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350℉. Line a cupcake can alongside liners. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa pulverization, baking soda, baking pulverization, common salt, together with espresso pulverisation. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg too sugar. Whisk in the Greek yogurt, vanilla, buttermilk, together with butter until shine. Add dry out ingredients to wet in addition to mix until merely combined. Pour batter into tins too make full them three/4 the fashion total. Bake for xviii-xx minutes until tops are no longer jiggly as well as a toothpick comes out make clean. Let cool completely earlier filling them. I keep them inwards the tins for ten-fifteen minutes in addition to and then cool the residual of the way on a cooling rack.

While they are baking, I brand the filling and go on it inwards the refrigerator until they are cooled. To brand the filling, combine cream cheese, pumpkin, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, too salt inward a mixer fitted alongside the whisk attachment. Beat for 2-3 minutes until smoothen too fluffy. Gradually add together powdered sugar in addition to shell for an additional 2-iii minutes until combined. Refrigerate until cook to fill.

Once cooled, to fill up the cupcakes, set filling inward a pastry handbag. Cut fiddling holes out of the tops of cupcakes, using a modest paring knife, going near halfway downwardly the cupcake. The “circle” should be well-nigh the diameter of a quarter or a footling larger, too the “plugs” should look similar piffling cones that you tin can set dorsum on meridian once they are filled. Pipe the filling into the holes, too position cupcake plugs back on cupcakes.

For the buttercream, combine unsalted butter, cream cheese, marshmallow fluff, pumpkin, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, together with vanilla inward a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat for two-3 minutes until calorie-free as well as fluffy, scraping downwards the sides as needed. Gradually add together the powdered saccharide and trounce for another three-iv minutes on med/high speed until fluffy. You may want to double this if yous similar a lot of frosting. I personally am non a huge frosting someone. I definitely love it, just I love the cake office more.

Finally, piping or spread frosting onto cupcakes as well as garnish with shaved nighttime chocolate. I shave mine off of a bar alongside a vegetable peeler. These are best stored inward the fridge because of the cream cheese. They volition go along for a few days in the refrigerator, simply the twenty-four hour period they are made is preferred!


You gotta brand these for Halloween!
