I don't think the margins are too different between the Camaro and the Challenger. Material cost is going to be about the same for each, as will labour. Chrysler might be able to amortize the platform costs a bit better, but GM can spread the cost of more generic components that aren't specific to any platform (such as engines). Then there are incentives. I know that GM hasn't been offering very much on the Camaro, but I have no idea what its been like for the Dodge

In the end, I'd guess that its ends up more or less as a wash when you go model to model between the two. However, since GM sells twice as many Camaros ... they'll be making roughly twice the money off the total annual sales.
Note, if I've gotten any facts wrong in the above, just ignore any points I made with them
