Needless to say that this was our Valentine’s Day Dessert. Can you believe that this is “skinny”? This dessert was a hit…Low Points, Low Calories, Low Fat & Low Carbs! That isn’t icing on top….its just Fat Free Whipped Cream, heart sprinkles & a Chocolate Covered Strawberry. It is divine…try it out for yourself! I used my heart shaped spring form pans and was able to make 3 hearts and 15 cupcakes. If you are just making cupcakes it will make about 24.

I knew you wanted a peek inside 😉

    1. We definitely ate a bunch without a topping & enjoyed them. If you would like a more traditional cream cheese frosting beat together the following ingredients until smooth & creamy:
      8 oz 1/3 fat Philadelphia Cream Cheese
      1 cup powdered sugar
      1 tsp vanilla extract

  1. I made these today and I did not have success. First, I had enough batter from the cake mix to make just over 12 cupcakes. Second, the cheesecake mixture had TONS left over. Finally, the cupcakes looked great when they FIRST came out.. but after sitting for 2 minutes they were sunken in the middle. When you cut into one it was a goopy mess.

  2. Hello Sheena 🙂 Have been enjoying your blog for a while now and just wanted to let you know I have added this recipe, with a link back to you of course, over at my blog. The family really enjoyed it ! Julie.

  3. I made it in 2 8″ rounds and it turned out fine. I followed the cooking time on the box and greased and dusted the pans. I believe I ended up baking it for about 45 min (box said 38 but it was still gooey). I also added a pan of water to keep it a little more moist.

  4. In the oven right now!!! I can’t wait to try them and share them. This combines two of my favorite desserts. I need to learn to trust the rising process though, I always overfill… My cupcakes are billowing over the top of the holders. Oh well!!

        1. Sorry, have not made them yet, had an accident and broke a bone in my foot/ankle…… I hope to try them soon! I really do think that any greek yogurt would work, and like she said on another comment, plain could be used and then add a little vanilla. Let me know if you try it. Good Luck, can’t wait, they sound awesome and healthier than most.

  5. I know I can modify the filling by using Splenda, but how can I make the cake with out using a box mix, I’ve been on Atkins for almost 8 months and have lost 45 # but I need a cake mix with much less carbs since my daily intake is 30 carbs, can you help???

    1. Gail, I am totally thinking you could use the Pillsbury’s chocolate sugar free cake mix and add the ingrediants to convert to a red velvet cake. I have a friend who loves red velvet cake but is diabetic and I’ve been going to try it.

      1. I make cup cakes like this but it chocolate it’s called black bottom cup cakes. Got out of cook book years ago. But I make it into a black bottom cake all the time.It’s a big hit with my family.We call it death by chocolate.

      1. Hello: Sheena
        If a make this for a regular cake I want to cover with foundant and decorations. I need to keep the cake in the fridge all the time or I can put just for a couple hours.

    1. Mariel, I wouldn’t take a chance…especially with all the dairy in the cake. I would let it set in the fridge, then remove to decorate & place back in fridge to store it. Remove the cake about an hour before serving. Hope that helps!!

  7. I’ve made these twice and they collapsed both times.

    The first time I took them out of the oven and they collapsed. Last night I left them in the oven until it cooled and they collapsed again. Once the timer went off they looked great but when I went to check on them 10 minutes later they collapsed 🙁 (I did not open the oven until they were cooled the second time)

    Please help!

    1. It sounds like for some reason your mixture is not firm enough. Is the cheesecake mixture thick enough and are you using just the dry part of the cake mix? Do not make the cake mix as directed.

  9. I found you on Pinterest a year or more ago and have been making these ever since. They are a huge hit with my family and everyone who tries them. I am about to make a huge batch for a charity bazaar. I’ll probably need to double even my planned batch so my family is still speaking to me after I donate it!
