No-Frost Cupcakes

Monday night I was craving chocolate and cheesecake so I combined the two and made my mom's "No-Frost Cupcakes". She didn't have much luck making them in Colorado because of the altitude, but I had no problem with them here on the East Coast.

They definitely hit the spot! And, I have enough of the cream cheese filling left to make a tray of brownies later in the week. Hubby LOVES brownies with cream cheese.

(I got 16 cupcakes with half the filling leftover for another use)

8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1/3 c. sugar
1/8 t. salt
6 oz. chocolate chips

½ t. salt
¼ c. cocoa
1-1/2 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
1 c. sugar
1/3 c. oil
1 c. water
1 T. vinegar
1 t. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Blend all the filling ingredients together, except the chocolate chips, until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and set aside. In a large bowl sift together ½ t. salt, cocoa, flour and baking soda; set aside. In a separate bowl, mix together sugar, oil, water, vinegar, and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients. Place cupcake liners in pan and fill about 1/3 full. Press 1 t. of cream cheese mixture into center. Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes.
