  • 4 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 pound butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour


  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Dash of salt
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line standard muffin tins with paper cupcake liners. In the top part of a double boiler over simmering water, melt the chocolate with the vanilla extract and butter.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs until thick and add the sugar. Beat in the flour. Fold in the butter-chocolate mixture. Spoon into the prepared tins, filling the cups 2/3 full.
  3. Mix the cream cheese, sugar, egg and salt until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips. Drop a rounded teaspoon of filling onto the top of each cupcake.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes.

Yield: 20 to 22 cupcakes
