Cupcakes

Okay, KWR, prepare to be WOW-ed by my amazing home made cooking skills. You may need to book yourself a course at a top notch cooking school before attempting these, because I have MASTERFUL baking skills. MASTERFUL.

Ingredients
1 - box Chocolate Devils Food cake mix and necessary ingredients to prepare
1 - bag semi sweet chocolate chips (or not, either way)
1 - can cherry pie filling (cheap stuff works great)
1 or 2 - cans prepared cream cheese frosting (vanilla is good too, as is whipped cream)
chocolate baking powder stuff (the Hershey chocolate baking powder in the can, that stuff)

Directions

1) prepare cake mix according to directions, mix in about half the bag of chocolate chips
2) spoon enough cake mix into a cupcake liner to cover the botton (I use a heaping spoonfull)
3) layer two or three cherries with sauce into the center of cake mix (try to keep them away from the edge of the cupcakes or they fall apart)
4) add another heaping spoonfull of cake mix to cover the cherries and filling the liner about 3/4 full
5) bake according to mix directions
6) cool completely
7) frost and then garnish with powder & remaining chocolate chips & cherries

Note: these will keep tightly covered in the fridge for a least a week**. I like to eat them cold, but J likes them warm with ice cream.

Makes about 2 dozen

And there you go, that is my super secret signature delicious recipe. Impressive, right?

** In theory. They've never lasted that long.

I'm not a huge fan of mixing my fruits and chocolates. I mean, why spoil the complete decadence with something that could be construed as remotely healthy? I likes my chocolates with my chocolates--sometimes even adding extra chocolates.

I have tried to find a "contact" button on your site but cannot and want to ask you to guest blog for me next week-when you are done baking can you please email me? thanks!
