Chocolate Cream Cheese Cupcakes

These are delicious cupcakes and I love the chocolate cream cheese frosting. Recipe from Martha Stewart Living magazine. YUM.

Cupcakes
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup boiling water
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk (or buttermilk)
2 eggs

Frosting
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup chocolate chips, melted

Preheat oven to 350. Line 15 muffin tins or 12 regular muffin tins and 12 mini muffins.
Mix together flour, sugars, soda and salt. Boil water and pour over chocolate chips, butter and cocoa, stirring until chocolate is melted. Add sour cream, milk and eggs. Combine with dry ingredients and pour into muffin liners. Bake for 20 minutes, cool before frosting.

For frosting: melt chocolate chips in microwave. Beat cream cheese and powdered sugar. Stir in chocolate and mix until smooth.
