Preheat oven to 375 F [180C]

Make the cream cheese mixture by blending the cream cheese, egg, sugar and salt with a wooden spoon.
Carefully fold in chocolate chips.

Make the cake batter by combining the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt in another bowl.
Mix the liquids into the flour mixture.
Blend thoroughly.
Line muffin tins with cupcake papers.  Fill about full with the batter.
Drop 1 heaping tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture into the center of each.

Bake until done, about 35-40 minutes.

Note:

If using the smaller baking cases available in Europe [2.5 cm high], fill full and use a heaping teaspoon-full of the cheese mixture. Bake about 20 minutes.
