Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes
Inside each of these cupcakes is a fruity surprise!
24 standard cupcakes
1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix
1 1/3 cups water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
1 (16 ounce) can vanilla frosting
Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Prepare muffin pans by placing baking cups in each cavity or by brushing the cavities with Pan Release or cooking spray.
In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, water, oil and eggs; mix well. Spoon batter by 1/4 cupfuls into muffin cups. Spoon a rounded teaspoon of pie filling onto the center of each cupcake. Set remaining pie filling aside.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted on an angle toward the center comes out clean. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Frost cupcakes; top with one cherry from pie filling. Serve additional pie filling with cupcakes or refrigerate or another use.
