Someone asked if I have a chocolate covered cherry recipe...I didn't, so I created one for him. It turned out rather well I think...Of course the cupcake I choose to cut open for the photo has a mere one little cherry showing...trust me, they have a bunch...
In a perfect world I would have filled these with whipped cherry cream of some sorts and topped with a stemmed maraschino cherry, but run out of ingredients...lol So I put coconut in the batter before baking and sprinkled it on the tops as you can see. It is really yummy.
Enjoy!

How to Make Chocolate Covered Cherry Cupcake

Step-by-Step

  • 1REMEMBER TO RESERVE THE LIQUID WHEN YOU DRAIN THE CHERRIES!!!
  • 2Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place cupcake liners in 36 cupcake holes...If you only have one cupcake pan...its ok to bake one pan at a time.
  • 3Sift together flour, powder, soda and salt. Set aside.
  • 4In a large mixing bowl mix together oil, milk and juice until it comes together. Then add vanilla nd almond extract. Add sugar and mix well. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Gradually mix in flour mixture, mixing well. Stir in cherries and coconut, if desired.
  • 5Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Be careful not to overbake. When toothpick comes out almost clean, they are done...don't wait until completely clean toothpick.
  • 6Remove from oven, let cool in pans 10 min, then remove to cooling racks to cool completely. When cooled, top with your favorite chocolate frosting or a ganache, or use my chocolate fudge recipe that is also posted on here...I'll put a link in the comment section for it. After you frost the cupcakes, sprinkle with a lil coconut and I would have also put a maraschino cherry on top as well, but ran out.
