Chocolate Cream Cheese Cupcakes

This recipe was in our newspaper on Wednesday, so I decided to give it a try. The cupcakes are nice & moist & the cream cheese filling sinks to the bottom, appearing almost like a cream cheese crust. The recipe called for a chocolate cream cheese frosting, but I thought that might be a bit too much for these already rich tasting cupcakes, so I just put a few chocolate chips on each one while they were still warm to give them a chocolate glaze.

Chocolate Cream Cheese Cupcakes
1 box devil's food cake mix
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 cup miniature chocolate chips

Prepare cake mix as package directs, placing batter in cupcake paper-lined muffin pans. In small bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth; beat in egg, fold in chocolate chips. Drop 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture into the center of cupcakes. Bake at 350 18-22 minutes or until cupcakes are baked through. The cupcakes will come up over the cream cheese filling to cover. Cool & frost.
