Goblin's Delight Cupcakes

This is a fun Halloween party treat. It's also good any time of the year, 
just change the cake flavor and filling color. Frosting can also be added.
8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
1/3 c. sugar
1 egg
1/8 tsp. salt
2 drops each red and yellow food color
1 c. chocolate chips
1 1/2 c. unsifted all purpose flour
1 c. sugar
1/3 c. cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 c. vegetable oil
1 c. water
1 TBS. vinegar
1 tsp. vanilla
Filling: Combine cream cheese, sugar, eggs, salt, food color in small bowl. Beat until smooth. Add chocolate chips. Set aside.
Cupcakes: Combine ingredients in order listed in large mixing bowl. Blend well on low speed. Fill 24 paper muffin cups 2/3 full with batter. Spoon about 1 tablespoon cheese filling onto each cupcake. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in cake portion comes out clean.
This year, instead of making chocolate cupcakes, I used a spice cake  mix.  Then I frosted them with buttercream frosting flavored with cinnamon.  They were delicious!


  1. Bonnie, thanks for visiting my blog! Our two Doxies are sweethearts, but Bessie is unique . . . best way I know to explain it is that either there are some wires not connected in her brain, or maybe they are just crossed and not connected correctly! If we've been gone for a while, we always take them straight to the back door, but Bessie will not go down the back steps until she has peed somewhere on the porch and smelled it - then and only then will she go down the steps! She also frequently forgets how to get back up the steps! It's never boring with Bessie around! Thanks again - and the cupcakes sound delicious! Becky
