Chocolate lovers who must not eat gluten... here is a GLUTEN FREE delight for you!! A Chocolate Cupcake with a cream cheese filling, topped with cherry pie filling and Whipped Cream.

If you want, you can bake them a day ahead, and refrigerate them until serving time. Just chill your Cherry Pie Filling at the same time. To serve, top them with cherry pie filling and whipped cream. (I suggest leaving them in their cupcake wrapper, so they will stand up pretty!)
