Cream Cheese Chocolate Cupcakes

These cupcakes are sooooo goooood. Easy to make, too. Great for a bake sale or potluck. Found this recipe at when I was looking for a dessert to make and take to a friends' house. I love black-bottom cupcakes, so I wanted to try these :) I took it as a compliment with our friends asked to keep the leftovers!

8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1/8 tsp. salt
2 cups chocolate chips

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 Tbsp. white vinegar
1 tsp. vanilla

For cream cheese filling: In a bowl, beat cream cheese. Add sugar, egg and salt. Mix well. Fold in chocolate chips. Set aside.

For cupcakes: In another bowl, combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Add water, oil, vinegar, and vanilla. Mix well.

Fill paper-lined muffin cups half full with cupcake batter. Top each with 2 tablespoons of cream cheese mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Cool 10 minutes and remove from pan. Makes 18 cupcakes.
