Ingredients

  • 12 Oreos

Topping

  • 15 ounces cherry pie filling
  • 1 ¼ cups heavycream
  • 2 ½ tbsp sugar

Cake

  • ¾ cup chocolatechips meltand then cool
  • 2 tbsp unsweetcocoa powder
  • cup sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tsp vanillaextract
  • 12 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 12 eggs
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup heavy cream

Instructions

Crust

  • For the crust, just crush 12 Oreos and mix them with a tablespoon and a half of melted butter. Press that into the bottom and sides of your muffin cups.

Toppings

  • Mix your heavy cream until peaks start to form, and then add in the sugar and continue mixing until peaks form once more.
  • Before adding the topping, scoop out a small section of cheesecake from the center of each cupcake. Fill that empty space with cherry filling and cover back with cheesecake. Then, add your topping.

Cake

  • Mix together cocoa, salt, and ⅔ cup of sugar. Mix until there are no more clumps, and then add in the cream cheese and sugar. Whip all of that together until smooth.
  • Next, mix in your eggs, one at a time. Then, add in vanilla and melted chocolate. Mix until smooth and then add sour cream and heavy cream and mix that all together as well.
  • You will likely have some air bubbles trapped in your mixture that you need to get rid of. To remove them, you will need to tap the bowl onto the countertop hard,30 times or so. Next, scoop out about ¼ of a cup of mixture into each muffin cup, over the crust.
  • Bake your black forest cupcakes for 17 minutes in an oven preheated to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. They are done when the center jiggles just slightly. Take them out of the oven and allow them to cool for about an hour, then cover them and refrigerate.
