INGREDIENTS
  • Filling:
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 6 ounces chocolate chips
  • Beat first 4 ingredients together until smooth, then add in the chips. Set aside.
  • Batter:
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
DIRECTIONS
  1. Sift dry ingredients together in a medium size bowl. Combine the liquids in a larger bowl and add dry ingredients, stirring until smooth.
  2. Pour the chocolate batter into paper-lined muffine tins, leaving 1/4 inch at the top. Add a half teaspoon of filling to each. For regular cupcakes, fill cups about halfway and add a generous tablespoon of filling. (You may sprinkle these with a mixture of chopped nuts and sugar if you wish).
  3. Bake at 350 degrees in a pre-heated oven for about 10 minutes(for mini cupcakes). Do not overbake or the tops may turn brown.
