Dream Cupcakes

Contributed By: Parker


1 package chocolate cake mix (regular size)
6 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut, optional


1. Prepare cake mix according to package directions for cupcakes. Fill 30 paper-lined muffin cups half full. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg and salt until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips and, if desired, coconut.
2. Drop about 2 teaspoons cream cheese mixture into the center of each cupcake. Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Store in the refrigerator.

My grandchildren absolutely love these cream-filled cupcakes, and I hope the chocolaty treats become a favorite in your home as well.
