Black-bottom cupcakes are best known—and loved—for their creamy cheesecake centers. Dutch-processed cocoa gave our Black-Bottom Cupcakes recipe a boost, and sour cream accentuated the chocolate flavor and added richness.

It also gave them enough structure to support the cheesecake filling, which we made with sour cream and two egg whites for moisture.

Do not substitute regular chocolate chips for the miniature chips. Regular chips are much heavier and will sink to the bottom of the cupcakes.
