The result.  Yummmmmm!



In a small mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, egg and sugar. Blend in 2 drops of yellow food coloring and one drop of red food coloring, adding color if necessary to reach desired shade. Use a mixing spoon to stir in chocolate chips, set filling aside.


In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

In a small mixing bowl combine water, vegetable oil, vinegar and vanilla.

Add contents of small bowl to the large bowl and stir with mixing spoon to combine.

Fill cupcake inner halves with batter, then place one teaspoon of the filling at center.  As cupcakes bake the batter will rise to surround the filling.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Bake for about 25 minutes.

And after that you should have some really fun and tasty cupcakes.
