Black Bottom Cupcakes

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 large egg
1/3 cup white granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 box Devil’s Food cake mix
Coffee, cold
Vegetable oil and large eggs for cake mix

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. Line 24 cupcake cavities with non-stick cupcake liners.

In a large bowl beat together the soft cream cheese with the large egg, white granulated sugar, salt and pure vanilla extract. Beat in the semi-sweet chocolate chips.

In another large bowl make the boxed cake mix but use the cold coffee in place of the water. Use the vegetable oil and large eggs as the box directs.

Place the batter into the prepared cupcake cavities, filling about 1/3 of the way full. Dollop on top one tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture and do not push down.

Bake in preheated oven 20 minutes.

Remove and cool slightly. Place into the refrigerator for 2 hours before enjoying.
