Tiny Black Bottomed Cupcakes

This was my FAVORITE christmas treat as a little kid.  Kids love mini things and these bite-sized cupcakes definitely fit that bill.  A delicious mix of chocolate cake and cream cheese filling, these little guys are finished off with a few chocolate chips just to top off the awesomeness.  This recipe is pretty quick and easy to make, although you are limited by the number of mini cupcake tins you have, but altogether WORTH IT!
