READY IN: 30mins




  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place cupcake cups into miniature cupcake pans.
  • Make the topping: Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese, egg, sugar and salt until creamy and smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Make the cupcake batter: Sift together the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Add the liquid ingredients: water, cooking oil, vinegar and vanilla, and beat for one minute on low speed, then for another minute on medium speed. (The batter may be a little thin.).
  • Fill small cupcake cups about halfway (or a little more) with the chocolate batter. Drop a scant teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture on top.
  • Bake for approximately 20 minutes. Makes 4 dozen.
  • (tip: use a piping back, or a zip lock bag with the corner cut out, to fill the cupcake cups with the batter, especially if you are doubling this recipe for a crowd.).
