easy chocolate and cream cheese cupcakes
Anyone who is short on time and loves a good cupcake will love this recipe. This recipe yields 12 cupcakes.
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup sugar
1 pinch salt
6 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups GF all purpose flour
1/4 cup Hershey's baking cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup water
1/2 cup coconut oil (or any oil on hand)
1 T vinegar
1 tsp vanilla
In a small bowl combine first four ingredients, add chocolate chips, and set aside. Mix remaining ingredients in a separate bowl. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fill cupcake paper-lined muffin tins halfway with the chocolate mixture, then drop a large spoonful of the cheese mixture on top of the chocolate (to fill the cups to 3/4 full). Bake for about 18 minutes.
So simple, anyone who is severely kitchen-challenged can still make these!
