      My Mom used to make these for us as kids but since my metabolism doesn't function as well as it did when I was 13 I was thrilled to see a low fat version :) Even without the added fat and calories, they turned out just as I remember..moist chocolate cupcakes with a creamy "cheesecake" center!! I didn't have the full amount of chocolate chips but it didn't effect the taste for us at all and saved a few calories to boot! Thanks for posting!

      All I can say about these are YUM! What a wonderful treat that is lowfat! I used all mini-choc chips and sprayed my muffin liners with cooking spray. Great Recipe, Thanks for sharing!

      Great tasting muffins! Used low-fat cream cheese and a mix of chocolate and butterscotch chips. Made 15 muffins. The only little problem... they stuck a bit to the paper baking cups... but that didn't stop us from enjoying them!!! Thanks Elaine!
