Chocolate Cupcakes with Goat Cheese Frosting

If you like cheese or goat cheese in particular, you will love these.  If you don’t, but you like chocolate, you’ll love the cupcake part.  Either way, you should try them.  They got left out on my kitchen and my cat licked almost half of the icing off of an entire cupcake!  Needless to say she is a cheese lover and lover of food in general.  I adapted this recipe from Butrcreamblondi.
