Easy Black Bottom Cupcakes

8 oz cream cheese

1/2 c sugar

1 egg

1 c chocolate chips

1 box devil's food cake mix (preferably the non-pudding type)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cupcake pan(s) with 20-24 paper liners. Cream together cream cheese and sugar. Add egg and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. Set aside. Prepare cake mix according to directions on box. Fill each cup 1/2 full (a #20 disher works well) with cake batter. Plop 1 tbsp (a #50 disher works well) of cream cheese mixture on batter in the center of each cup. Top with more cake mix (#20 disher, half-full or #40 disher). Bake 22 minutes (or whatever cake mix instructions give as baking time for cupcakes). Remove from tins and cool completely on wire rack.
