Today is my friend Robert Lee Fosters birthday and a little birdie told me he likes cupcakes and loves chocolate, so I am thinking this should hit his spot. Happy Birthday Robert, I wish for you the most fabulous day!

8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1 egg
1/3 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Line muffin tins with cupcake papers. Using wooden spoon, blend cream cheese, egg, sugar and salt in mixing bowl. Carefully fold in chocolate chips, set aside.

Combine dry ingredients in another bowl, mixing well. Add remaining ingredients and blend thoroughly. Fill cupcake papers about 3/4 full with bater. Drop 1 heaping tablespoon cream cheese mixture into center of each. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.
Yield: 18 cupcakes

COOKS NOTE: These stay moist for several weeks. Yummy...
