|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
1/8 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!
