    peanut butter & milk chocolate cakes with cream ch

    Alice Downey from NORWELL, MA

    I made these cakes and they were the best ever so I decided to bake a batch for my grandchildren while I was babysitting them. Alas, no chips in the house but there was a bag of Nestle Butterscotch chips. I made the recipe exactly the same just substituting the butterscotch chips. The grandkids (two are teenagers)LOVED them and they disappeared in a few minutes. 5 stars for this recipe and a permanent addition to my cookie cookbook.

    PB and Chocolate Cakes with Cream Cheese Filling

    Pam Camilleri from Sharbot Lake, ON

    I gave them a try and to my surprise they were pretty good. On reading the recipe it didn't sound like it would satify my craving for a sweet. The result was very good.

    I just made these this morning, and my home smelled so wonderful. But the cakes tasted better than the smell going through the house.

    Wonderful

    BETTY MOUNTS from NEWPORT NEWS, VA

    Made these for my family last Saturday and they sure did not stay around long. Next time I am going to try half butterscotch chips and half milk chocolate chips for a different taste.

    What a hit!

    Roxanne Cockerham from Malvern, PA

    I made these today for a Valentine party and they were a great hit! Everyone loved the combination of p.b., chocolate & cheesecake. I put a bit too much cheesecake mixture on the 1st 12 cupcakes and did not have enough for the rest of the cupcakes, so I made a second batch of the cheesecake mixture and used a 9x9 pan instead of cupcakes. This also turned out just great!

    Patricia Clark from PHOENIX, AZ

    These are very good and the cream cheese is a great addition to make them extra special. I know I will be making these cupcakes often.

    new and different

    Heather Ainge from TOPEKA, KS

    Easy to make and tastes pretty good. I think the title should be changed because the cream cheese is not a filling but more a topping.

    Attractive

    Helen Foster from Santa Rosa, CA

    This unusual recipe also makes quick, dainty tea cakes when baked in fluted aluminum liners and peeled. Then cut crosswise into 1/4 inch thick slices to reveal the fluted edge.

    Easy, but appeared to be somewhat dry...

    katrina cox from owings mills, MD

    Making these cupcakes was a snap. They did not look anything like the photograph and they looked a little dry in texture. I sent them to work with my husband, hopefully they will taste better than they look.
