Chocolate Muffins with Cream Cheese Filling

These muffins are delicious. They are little more work than the usual muffin, but not a lot and totally worth it!

Chocolate Muffins with Cream Cheese Filling

3 ounces cream cheese
2 tablespoons sugar

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup margarine, melted

Filling:  In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese and sugar thoroughly, until light and fluffy. Set aside.

Muffin: In a medium bowl, stir together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the centre by pushing all of the mixture to the sides of bowl, until the centre is empty.

In a small bowl or large measuring cup, combine the beaten egg, milk and melted margarine. Pour this mixture into the well of the dry ingredients. Stir the dry and wet ingredients together to moisten. The batter should be lumpy.

Into a greased muffin tin, add 2 tablespoons of muffin mix to each muffin section. Drop approximately 1 teaspoon of the cream cheese filling onto each muffin until all the filling is evenly distributed and is used up. Top each filled muffin with more batter to cover all the muffins until all the batter is used up.

Bake at 375F for 20 minutes.

Here is how they look on the inside. They are a tasty treat!
