..Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes


Yup, that's a strawberry cheesecake flavored cupcake.  I'd say it was a hit as every single one was eaten at my work pot-luck par-tay.  I was really conflicted about what flavor to make this year.  There are so many fun Christmas recipes floating around like gingerbread, chocolate peppermint, etc. but I decided that these are just as good of a holiday selection, who doesn't have cheesecake at Christmas?  AND they are red and white, so there you have it!

1. Bake white cake as per box instructions.
2. Stuff cupcakes with good quality strawberry spread.
3. Blend 1.5 Packages of cream cheese, 1 stick of butter, 2.5 cups of confectioners sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla for frosting.
4. Crush 2 graham crackers (I did three and it ended up being WAY to much) and sprinkle over frosting
5. Top with 1/4 strawberry.
