Recipe: Dalmatian Cupcakes

I made these this week and my friends declared them the best cupcakes ever. I think it mostly says that my friends are Chocolate addicts...

Recipe: Dalmatian Cupcakes
(Adapted from Betty Crocker's Cupcakes, Cakes and More April/May 2010)

- 2 packages (3 oz each) cream cheese, softened
- 1/3 cup Sugar
- 1 egg
- 1-1/2 cups miniature semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 box devil's food cake mix
- 1-1/3 cups water
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 3 eggs
- 1 bag (11.5 oz) white chocolate chips
- 1 container vanilla frosting

Preheat oven to 350 (325 for nonstick or dark pans). Prepare muffin cups with paper baking cups (silicon baking cups also work well).

In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese, sugar, and 1 egg until smooth. Stir in 1 cup of the semisweet chocolate chips. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat together cake mix, water, oil and 3 eggs on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat at medium speed for two minutes. Stir in the white chocolate chips. Divide batter into the baking cups: 1/4 cup of batter in each baking cup. Top with a heaping teaspoon of cream cheese mixture.

Bake 17-27 minutes or until tops spring back when touched lightly. Cool 10 minutes in pan. Remove cupcakes from pan gently and cool completely.

Frost with frosting. Sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips.
