I am conflicted about these cupcakes. On the one hand, they taste good, but on the other, they did not turn out like they're supposed to. I followed the recipe exactly except added a little vanilla extract to the cake mix. When they baked, the cream cheese mixture sunk straight to the bottom of the cupcake so I ended up with "cream cheese bottom cupcakes" rather than "black bottom cupcakes." It's impossible to get them out of the cupcake paper unless they're cold. The good thing is that they taste pretty good and I like the texture of the cream cheese. It is very creamy. I don't know, maybe an egg would have made the filling not sink to the bottom? It would have changed the texture too which I'm not sure I would have liked. Also to me the amount of filling in each cupcake is just right. Next time I am going to experiment with leaving out the chocolate chips (I used minis but still don't like the crunchy texture of them when cold) and try just baking the cupcakes like normal and then piping the sweetened cream cheese into the center.
