Cream Cheese Swirled Brownie Cupcakes

| |

I suppose these are really brownies that happen to be baked in a muffin tin using cupcake wrapper.  But I’m ok with calling them cupcakes because, well, I CAN.  Anyway, chocolate and cream cheese are always good together and this recipe from Food Recipes Miracles is super easy and will be a hit with the kids this summer.  So whip up a batch and call them cupcake.  No will argue with you because they will be too busy reaching for a second one to enjoy.
