Chocolate Cheesecake Cupcakes

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

Cheesecake filling
8 oz room temperature cream cheese
1 egg
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.
