These cupcakes are easy to make. The cream cheese center is always a surprise and easy to make changes to. In fact I made lots of changes to the recipe and it turned out great.

1/2 c

1/4 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix box cake according to directions. (For this recipe I substituted orange juice for the water called for in the directions).
2
Combine the cream cheese, egg, sugar and vanilla.
3
Place paper baking cups in the muffin tins. Put a small amount of batter in each cup (around 1 tablespoon), then put a good tablespoon of the cream cheese batter next. Finally fill approximately 2/3 full with chocolate batter.
4
Bake @ 350 degrees for approximately 15-20 minutes
