Black Bottom Cupcakes

Brian and I have made these twice now and we love them! We buy Western Family cream cheese and each time I would see this recipe on the inside of the box. I didn't look at the recipe for a long time because the idea of a black bottom cupcake didn't seem very yummy to me. Anyway, it's very easy and very tasty! Just so you know, this time we only had medium eggs and it made the cheese cake part a little runny and made it brown a little more as well. They tasted the same, they just looked prettier the first time we made them.

Black Bottom Cupcakes

8 oz. package cream cheese
1 egg
1/3 c. sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
6 oz. chocolate chips (about 1 cup)
1 package Devil's Food Cake Mix (plus ingredients cake calls for)

Preheat oven to 350. Combine cream cheese, egg, sugar, and salt. Mix until well blended. Mix in chocolate chips and set aside. Prepare cake mix according to package instructions. Fill cupcake liners 1/3 full with cake batter. Top with heaping tablespoons of cream cheese mixture (you can be generous). Bake for 30-35 minutes. Makes 24 cupcakes.

*We were generous with both the amount of cake batter and the amount of cream cheese mixture.
