Deiciocity Friday: Nearly Chocolate Overload Cupcakes

Yellow cupcakes with chocolate chips, chocolate chip cream cheese filling and chocolate frosting.
These would be chocolate overload except I used yellow cake mix. You could easily go all out and make everything chocolate by using chocolate cake mix.

Yellow cake mix
Ingredients required on cake box
1/2 cup chocolate chips

8oz cream cheese
1 egg
1/3 cup white sugar
1 cup chocolate chips
Dash of salt

(also need frosting of choice)

Start by making the filling. Allow cream cheese to get to room temperature. Meanwhile chop the chocolate chips up, either by hand or via a food processor. Using a beater, mix the cream cheese and egg. Once mixed add in the sugar and salt. Finally fold in the chocolate chip pieces.
 Set aside.

Preheat your oven and prepare your cupcake pans as directed. 
Mix your cake mix like normal, when finished gently fold in your chocolate chips.

Begin filling your cupcake liners. Fill about 2/3rds full of cake mix. Do not go over or you'll end up with mushroom cloud cupcakes. Then add about a tablespoon of your filling on top of the cake batter.
This should make more then the usual 24 cupcakes so be prepared for that.

Bake as directed, allow to cool then frost.
Makes a moist cream cheese cupcake that is oh so delicious!
