Why I Love This Recipe

I saw this recipe in the Everyday with Rachael Ray magazine and had to try it. They are so yummy and just melt in your mouth. Its a perfect blend of two wonderful things...cream cheese & chocolate.


Ingredients You'll Need

8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
2 ½ cups sugar
Salt
1 large egg
6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
2 ¼ cups flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 ½ teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract


Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°.


Line two 12- cup muffin pans with paper or foil baking cups.


Using an electric mixer, combine the cream cheese, 1 cups sugar and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Add the egg and mix well.


Fold in chocolate chips and set aside.


In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, the remaining 1 ½ sugar, ¾ teaspoons salt, the baking soda and cocoa powder.


Add 1½ cups water, the oil, vinegar and vanilla and stir until smooth.


Fill each baking cup two-thirds full with the cake batter and top with 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture.


Bake until the edges are firm to the touch, about 25 minutes.
