Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes

Happy Belated Valentine’s Day!

To bring back the old memories of handing out Valentine’s Day card in elementary school, I decided to make edible Valentines this year. It worked out well because most of my friends had midterms yesterday night, so hopefully my cupcakes brightened up their day 🙂

This cupcake had a lot of components to it:

  1. Graham cracker crust bottom
  2. Vanilla Cake
  3. Strawberry cheesecake center
  4. Cream cheese icing
  5. Chocolate-dipped strawberry
  6. Edible personalized chocolate heart


This was my first time experimenting with baking a filled cupcake, and I’m so glad it worked out right the first time! I’ve been experimenting a lot over the past week, and I’m starting to bloat up with a spoon here and a test-taste there :S

The edible chocolate heart was the hardest component of this cupcake to make because they were so fragile and kept on breaking! But other than that, this recipe is very easy, and a very delightful treat too!

I hope you enjoy this recipe, and share with me your experience! 🙂


1. Line the bottom of your cupcake liner with 1 tsp of graham cracker crust. Use the teaspoon to press down on the crust so that it coats the bottom evenly


2. Fill the liner halfway with cupcake batter

3. Place a piece of cheesecake in the centre of the liner


4. Add cupcake batter onto the cheesecake so that when the cupcake bakes, there’s cake on top of the cheesecake. Your liner should now be 3/4 full



1. Pipe cream cheese frosting on top of the cupcake and place a chocolate-dipped strawberry on top of it


2. Melt chocolate and pipe hearts onto wax paper. Make sure that the heart has a long tail so that it can be inserted into the cupcake. Place the hearts into the freezer for 3 minutes


3. Melt milk or dark chocolate to pipe your Valentine’s name. Ensure that the letters touch the outline of the heart as much as possible so that when the complete figure dries, it will come off as one figure. Place the figures into the freezer for 3 minutes


4. Using a knife, slit a hole where you want the figure to be inserted

5. Insert the figure by holding on to the tail. If you hold the heart itself, it will break


…and now you have edible Valentines ready to be delivered! Happy baking 🙂
