Serves 20 cupcakes | Prep Time 30 minutes | Cook Time 25 minutes + cooling

Ingredients

1 package cream cheese (8 ounces), softened
1-1/2 cups sugar, divided
1 egg
1 teaspoon salt, divided
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar

Frosting:

3-3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons baking cocoa
1/2 cup butter, melted
6 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup chopped pecans


For filling, in a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and 1/2 teaspoon salt until combined. Fold in chocolate chips; set aside.


In a bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and remaining sugar and salt. In another bowl, whisk water, oil and vinegar; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.


Fill paper-lined muffin cups half full with batter. Drop filling by heaping tablespoonfuls into the center of each. Bake at 350 F. for 24-26 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in cake comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.


For frosting, in a large mixing bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, cocoa, butter, milk and vanilla; beat until blended. Frost cupcakes; sprinkle with pecans. Store in the refrigerator.


Yield: 20 cupcakes.

Notes

I started a quest about 20 years ago to collect as many different cupcake recipes as I could, (odd I know) also did the same with coffee cake recipes, anyway this one is very good and probably one of my top 5 favorites. I hope you like it also.
