Cream Cheese Stuffed Cupcakes

Does the thought of a rich, dark chocolate cupcakes stuffed with a creamy chocolate chip filling and topped with a sweet, fluffy buttercream make you jump for joy?

Well, it does me.  I love these giant cupcakes.  My mom used to make these for us when we were kids.  (And I'm pretty sure she still does.) 

Who wouldn't like the classic chocolate-vanilla cupcake combination with a hidden surprise inside?
