My Aunt made these a couple of weeks ago and my mom was raving about them, so I decided to whip up a batch and I am so glad that I did! The recipe is super easy and the result was fantastic! The office claimed that they were the best cupcakes that I had ever made! The cupcake is your favorite chocolate cake recipe with a surprise center of cheesecakey goodness! Whip up a batch and enjoy!
Chocolate Cheesecake Cupcakes
8 oz room temperature cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
8 oz. mini chocolate chips
Beat together cream cheese, egg and sugar until well incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips.
Fill cupcake cups half way with your favorite chocolate cake mix. Add a tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture to the cupcakes.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes. Cool completely on a rack and once fully cooled topped with your favorite frosting, I used a combination of creamcheese frosting and chocolate.
