Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins Super Hungry? Jump to the Recipe

Cookies may be the champions of Christmas, but muffins are certainly a welcome addition to any cookie platter in my opinion.

These chocolate muffins have a cheesecake filling that's colored with red, green and white sprinkles to add some holiday cheer.

Plus, I made my muffins mini so they are easy to sneak into your mouth in a single bite. And trust me when I say, these things are straight addictive!
