Thursday, December 16, 2010 black bottom cupcakes

It's mid December and that means the annual cookie exchange with my girlfriends! We have it Friday night so I spent last night making my mom's miniature black bottom cupcakes. She got this recipe from a friend years ago and they've been a staple in our family ever since.

{Make sure you have a mini cupcake pan and line it with mini cupcake wrappers}

{Add your cocoa mixture first; 1/3 full}

{Finish each off with a teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture}

{Bake for 15 minutes and voila!}

{Delicious black bottom cupcakes!!}

Miniature Black Bottom Cupcakes

 {for the cream cheese mixture}
1 8 oz package of cream cheese
1 egg
1/3 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
12 ozs semi sweet chocolate chips
{for the cupcake mixture}
1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
