Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 24+ muffin cups with paper liners.
Cupcake mixture: In large bowl, mix together flour, 2 to 2 1/2 cups sugar, cocoa powder, 1 tsp salt and baking soda. Stir in oil, water, vinegar and vanilla until blended.
Filling Mixture: In medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese, egg, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 tsp salt until light and fluffy. Stir in chocolate chips.
Pour cupcake mixture into muffin cups, filling each 1/3 full. Add spoonful of filling mixture into each cupcake. Pour remaining cupcake mixture into muffin cups. Bake for 25 minutes. Allow to cool to let filling set. Great stored in the fridge for the next day. Tasty with chocolate or cream cheese frosting, but also delicious by themselves.
