What You'll Need:

1 (15-1/4-ounce) package chocolate cake mix
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips, divided
3/4 cup heavy cream

What To Do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line muffin cups with paper liners.
Make cake mix according to package directions. Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling each cup about 1/2 full.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, then stir in 1 cup chocolate chips. Drop 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture onto each cupcake.
Bake as cake mix package directs. Let cool.
Place remaining chocolate chips in a medium bowl. In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring heavy cream to a boil, stirring constantly. Pour over chocolate chips and stir until mixture is smooth. Let ganache cool 5 to 10 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Spoon over top of each cupcake. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
