...Black forest Cherry stuffed cupcakes...
1 pkg Devil food cake mix
1 can of cherry pie filling
1 tsp almond extract
1/4 cup chocolate syrup
1-8 oz container whipped cream cheese
2 cups of powdered sugar
1-4oz bar of semi sweet chocolate
1-8oz container of whipped cream
Prepare cake batter as directed ...with the exception of instead of 1& 1/4 cups of water.. I used 1 cup of water & 1/4 cup of chocolate syrup..& Instead of regular oil..I always use olive oil..I know sounds expensive but believe me its worth it! I also added the 1 tsp of Almond extract...use eggs as directed.
bake for 20-25 minutes @ 350. Let cakes cool on counter ,prepare cream cheese mix as follows
in a medium bowl ..mix on low speed with handheld blender the cream cheese and powdered sugar , next open cherry filling..when cupcakes are cooled , use a spoon and scoop out a small section of the center of the cupcake, fill with 1tsp of cream cheese mix and 1 tsp of the cherry pie filling...top with whipped cream & chocolate curls ( which i did by "peeling "the chocolate bar with a veggie peeler) top with a cherry for garnish..there is nothing difficult about this recipe...I would even say it's simple..but wow!!! Looks so pretty and bakery bought...give it a try !!
