    5 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
    1 cup water
    1/3 cup cream cheese, at room temperature
    2 1/4 cups Splenda
    1/2 cup vegetable oil
    1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
    3 large eggs
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon fine sea salt
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips


Place an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 325 degrees F.

Combine the unsweetened chocolate and water in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir constantly until the chocolate is melted, about 2 minutes. Cool for 2 minutes. Whisk in the cream cheese until the mixture is smooth.

Beat the Splenda, oil, applesauce, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl for 30 seconds. Stir in the chocolate-cream cheese mixture. Whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, and chocolate chips in a medium bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the chocolate mixture. Stir until just blended.

Divide the batter among the prepared muffin pans. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a tester inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out with no crumbs attached.
