Chocolate Covered Cherry Cupcakes

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cupcakes

These Chocolate Covered Cherry Cupcakes are absolutely DELICIOUS! They are an amazing treat for this upcoming Holiday season! Many people consider chocolate covered cherries to be a traditional treat around the Holiday Season, I know my mom definitely does. As a girl growing up, around the Holiday season my mother almost always had Queen Ann Chocolate Covered Cherries in the house.  She would just eat them up day by day and I never understood why.  I thought it was so weird that anyone would think the gooeyness inside the chocolate was that good. My mom always told me to give them a try but I never wanted to. I always assumed I would never like them.

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cupcakes

Well when I got older I am still right! I to this very day do NOT like store bought Chocolate Covered cherries from a box at all. Surprisingly enough, I couldn’t get enough of these cupcakes though, ha ha. Neither could the hubby and kids. With the taste of the chocolate covered cherries embedded into the creamy frosting is absolutely to die for! Not to mention the burst of flavor you get when you bite into the cupcake, being that there is a maraschino cherry in the middle, yum. These cupcakes are just so moist and truly have that melt in your mouth flavor with the addition of the chocolate covered cherry flavoring.
