In your first mixing bowl, make the filling:
- 1 cup cream cheese (8 ounce package)
- 1 unbeaten egg
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- beat well, then stir in a 6 ounce package of chocolate chips
Sift together dry batter ingredients in the second mixing bowl:
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup cocoa
Add wet batter ingredients to the second mixing bowl:
- 1 cup water
- 1/3 cup cooking oil
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix the batter together well. Line your muffin tins and fill each cupcake a third with chocolate batter from bowl #2. To each cupcake, add a heaping teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture from bowl #1.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. Watch the time on these! They may be done in 25 minutes… the cream cheese tops should still be light-colored.
This recipe makes 2 dozen cupcakes.
