Surprise Cupcakes (as per Shirley Cross, my granny)

FILLING:
8 oz pkg cream cheese (softened)
1 egg
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
6 oz package chocolate chip

BATTER:
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup salad oil
2 cups water
2 tblsp vinegar
2 tsp vanilla

Combine filling ingredients; cheese, egg, 1/3 cup sugar and salt.  Beat until smooth and add chips.  Set aside.

Sift together all dry batter ingredients.  Add all liquids to sifted ingredients and mix until smooth.

Fill cupcake pans two-thirds full, top with a heaping teaspoon of filling.  Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.  Makes 2 1/2 doz.  These freeze really well.

Variations: butterscotch chips, mint chips, nuts, etc can all be used in place of chocolate chips.
