  • Heat oven to 350ºF.

  • Bake 15 to 18 min. or until center is almost set. Cool 30 min.; cover. Freeze 2 hours.
  • Use foil handles to remove cheesecake from pan. Cut into 24 small hearts with 1-inch cookie cutter.
  • Prepare cake batter as directed on package; spoon into 24 paper-lined muffin cups (see Tip.) Insert cheesecake heart, point side down, in center of batter in each cup.
  • Bake 18 to 20 min. or until tops of cupcakes are firm. Cool 10 min. Remove from pan to wire racks; cool completely.
  • Prepare White Chocolate-Cream Cheese Frosting; spread onto cupcakes. Top with sprinkles.

Special Equipment Needed

Lining-Up Your Hearts

Cut 2 (1/4-inch-deep) notches in opposite sides of each cupcake liner before placing in muffin pans and filling with batter. Stand cheesecake heart in batter in each cup, lining up top curved edges of heart with notches. To reveal hearts, cut frosted cupcakes in half across notches.

Size Wise

At 24 servings, this fun recipe is great for a party or classroom celebration.

How to Store

Keep frosted cupcakes refrigerated.

Important Note

When cutting the frozen cheesecake into the heart shapes, be sure to leave as little space possible between the cutouts.


Prepare using your favorite color of food coloring.
