Chocolate-Cream Cheese Cupcakes
1 package (18 1/4 ounces) chocolate cake mix, batter
prepared according to the package directions
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup (6 ounces) butterscotch chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 container (16 ounces) cream cheese frosting
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Spoon the prepared batter equally into 24 muffin cups that have been lined with
paper baking cups, filling each cup three-quarters full.
In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, and egg until fluffy. Stir in
the butterscotch chips and walnuts until well mixed. Spoon a heaping teaspoon of
the cream cheese mixture into the center of the batter in each cup.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the cupcakes
comes out clean.
Allow to cool completely, then frost with the cream cheese frosting.
Serve, or cover loosely until ready to serve.
Yields: 24 cupcakes
