Cream Cheese Filled Cupcakes


These cupcakes are amazing!!  My mom made them growing up and I loved them!  I made them for my husband’s birthday and still loved them.  I definitely ate a few too many, that’s for sure.  They are yummy with frosting or without.  My kids preferred them with the frosting, I like them better without. 
Filled cupcakes
This is what you need:
1 chocolate cake mix
8oz cream cheese (softened)
1 egg
1/3 cup sugar
dash of salt
6 oz chocolate chips
Mix up the cake mix as directed and fill the cupcake liners like you normally would. 
Mix the rest of the ingredients (not cake)  and then put in one tsp into the middle of the cupcakes.
Bake as directed on the cake mix.

I would love it if you followed along.
