  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • 1 large egg

  • cup white sugar

  • teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup water

  • cup vegetable oil

  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 12-cup muffin tins or line with paper cups.

  2. Beat cream cheese, egg, 1/3 cup sugar, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl until light and fluffy. Stir in chocolate chips; set aside.

  3. Mix together flour, 1 cup sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center; add water, oil, vinegar, and vanilla. Stir together until well blended.

  4. Fill the prepared muffin tins about 1/3 full with chocolate batter. Top each with a dollop of cream cheese mixture.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the chocolate cake comes out clean and the cream cheese center is set, 25 to 30 minutes.
