Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners.

    2. Filling: Beat cream cheese with sugar, egg and salt until smooth. Place 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the chips in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on MEDIUM (50%) for 30 seconds; if needed, continue to microwave for 10 seconds at a time, stirring until chips are melted and smooth. Blend melted chips into cream cheese mixture. Stir in remaining chips and set aside.

    3. Batter: Stir flour with sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl until combined. Add water, oil, vinegar and vanilla; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.

    4. Divide batter between prepared muffin cups. Drop a spoonful of cream cheese mixture into the center of each cup. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted into the cake portion comes out clean. Transfer cupcakes to a wire rack to cool completely.

    5. Drizzle: Place chocolate chips and shortening in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on MEDIUM (50%) for 30 seconds; if needed, continue to microwave for 10 seconds at a time, stirring until chips are melted and smooth. Drizzle over cupcakes. Let stand until set.
