Chocolate Cream Cheese Muffins

Cream together

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 sticks butter


  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup dark cocoa powder

Stir In

  • One 12-ounce package semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips

After the chocolate muffin mix is ready to go, it’s time to make the cream cheese filling.

Cream Cheese Filling

  • 12 ounces packages of cream cheese, softened
  • 2 teaspoons of lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Whip together well.

Line large muffin tins with cupcake liners or spray with non-stick baking spray. Fill large muffin cups about 2/3 full of muffin batter. Using handy dandy decorating bags, or your favorite decorating bag, with cream cheese filling and cut off the tip. About 1/2 inch or so will do. Then squeeze the filling into the center of each chocolate muffin. Let up on the pressure as you bring the bag up out of the muffin and squirt a little circle onto the top of it too.

Bake for about 30-40 minutes or until a fork poked into the chocolate muffin area comes out clean.
