I wonder if there would be enough room in the cups to add a bit of cherry pie filling to them. It might taste kind of like a black forest cheesecake muffin.

ya i dont see why not, just add a bit to the top of the cream cheese filling then fill with the choc. batter

or after the muffins are done you could always top with the cherrys, like spread it on the top of the muffin..i think i may try that sometime

Recipe sounded great. The I read about adding cherries. Not a fan, so I added about 1 1/2 tsp of raspberry jam to the creme cheese sugar mixture. I used these HUGE clay muffin pots I have (great for Yorkshire pudding) and yielded 6 of the muffins. They are so good. Thanks for the inspiration!
