Craving cupcakes??  Here’s a delicious Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Cupcake Recipe that comes from my Grandma… her name was Gertrude. How sweet is that?!?  We called her Grandma Trudy, and let me tell you… you’re going to love this recipe!

Think chocolate decadence wrapped up in a cupcake!  Mmm…

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 box of Chocolate Cake Mix {and oil, eggs, etc. as required to prepare}
  • Cream Cheese ~ one 8 oz. package, softened
  • 1/3 cup Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Cupcake Holders
  • 1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

What You’ll Do:

  • Prepare box of Chocolate Cake Mix per instructions; then set aside.
  • In separate bowl, mix Cream Cheese, Egg, Sugar, and Salt.  Then add in Chocolate Chips and stir.
  • Fill cupcake holders 2/3 full with prepared Chocolate Cake Mix.  Then add one heaping teaspoon of Cream Cheese Filling into the center of each…
  • Bake 22 – 25 minutes at 350 degrees.  These are delicious when you frost up with some chocolate or cream cheese frosting, too.
  • ENJOY!!

    I have done something very similar to this but I used cherry chips instead of chocolate chips and then topped with cherry frosting! They are the best cupcakes EVER. I love the cream cheese filling so much. I've baked chocolate cookies and then put the frosting (minus the egg) in between two they are great home made Oreo's! I haven't tried it with all chocolate, that will be next!!! Keep up the great work!!

    If you wanted to make these in a mini muffin pan would it work? Im not a big baker, but thought this would be a nice treat to take to work for everyone

    Wow. I was thinking about making my husband a chocolate chip cheesecake as a surprise before the holiday madness begins, but now I'm going to make these instead. They seem much easier and just as tasty.

  7. Heidi @ The Frugal Girls! says:

    Hawkins ~ I have honestly never tried making these in the mini-muffin pans. I'm sure it would work, but you'd just need a much smaller amount of the filling.

    Enjoy!! :)
