Chocolate Cheese Cupcakes

If you notice this picture has the date stamp in 2006. Yups, I did take this picture in 2006 with my old digital camera UMAX Powercam Z432 and I posted the recipe at http://evimeinar.multiply.com/recipes/item/183 before.

This recipe was modified from a cookbook Making It Easy by Foodnetwork Kitchen. The original recipe has a name “Little Cheesecakes with Strawberry Sauce”. I didn’t have any fresh strawberry nor strawberry jams at that time, so I modified this recipe by added hazelnut chocolate.
