Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Vanilla Bean Muffins

 These guys are amazing. Seriously. They are too die for. I found them over at Cassie Craves and made them for one of our DVR and Dessert date nights. Yum Yum Yum!

1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 egg, room temperature
1/2 cup cream
1 inch vanilla bean (or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract)
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 400 and grease your muffin tin or set up liners. Beat together butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, cream and vanilla. In a separate bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the flour mixture to the cream cheese mixture and stir just until the flour is incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips. Spoon the mixture into the muffin pan until 3/4 full. Bake for about 20 minutes or until tops are golden.
