  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Combine cake mix, water, 3 eggs, and oil together in a bowl using an electric mixer until batter is smooth, about 2 minutes. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  3. Blend cream cheese, sugar, 1 egg, and vanilla extract together in a blender until cheesecake filling is smooth; stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Spoon about 1 tablespoon cheesecake filling into each cupcake.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into a cupcake comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Cool cupcakes on a wire rack.
  5. Frost each cupcake with cream cheese frosting and sprinkle remaining chocolate chips over each cupcake.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can use other kinds of vanilla but you will probably need to add a bit more. I find Mexican vanilla also has the best flavor.
  • I use fat-free cream cheese typically, but any kind works well. Cold cream cheese will take much longer to blend smooth than room temperature.

These cupcakes are absolutely amazing!! I made them for my daughter's birthday. We colored the frosting and used some sixlets for the top. Thanks for sharing!

These cupcakes were delicious! I substituted the store bought icing for homemade icing, and it turned out scrumptious. I will definitely make these again!
