This recipe is easy to follow and will result in some of the most mouth-watering cupcakes you’ve ever tasted.

– 2 C sugar – 1 3/4 C flour – 3/4 C cocoa – 1 tsp baking powder – 1 tsp baking soda – 1 tsp salt – 2 eggs, room temp – 1 C whole milk, room temp – 1/2 C canola oil – 2 tsp Kirsch – 1 C boiling water


Decorative Ingredients:  – Chocolate Kirsch Cupcakes that are cooled – Cherry pie filling  – Vanilla or sour cream frosting

You need your chocolate cupcakes to be baked and totally cooled off.       Use a spoon to carve out a hole in the center of each cupcake.

Fill the space cupcake hole with cherry pie filling.

Place the piping bag into a large glass and fold the sides of the bag over the rim of the glass. Scoop the vanilla frosting into the piping bag.       Bring the pastry bag edges up and twist them together to start decorating. Add your star tip.

If you don’t have a piping bag, try a plastic bag with the tip snipped off and star tip added. Frost the cooled and filled cupcakes.  Top cupcakes with one cherry and some sauce from the pie filling.
