Chocolate Cheesecake Cupcakes

One 8-oz. tub fat-free cream cheese, room temperature 

1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute
1/3 cup Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated)
1 drop vanilla extract

Half of an 18.25-oz. box (about 1 3/4 cups) moist-style devil's food cake mix

3/4 cup club soda 

1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with foil baking liners.

In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, egg substitute, sweetener, and vanilla extract.

With an electric mixer set to medium speed, beat until smooth.

In a large bowl, whisk cake mix with soda until smooth.

Evenly distribute cake mixture among the lined cups of the muffin pan. Smooth out the mixture with the back of a spoon.

Evenly distribute cream-cheese mixture among the cups. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.

Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out mostly clean, 24 - 26 minutes. (Make sure the chocolate cake layer is cooked through.)

Allow to cool completely. Enjoy. Refrigerate leftovers.
