Jealousy Chocolate Cherry Mini-Cupcakes

On the way home from work today, hubby says: “My Lean Cuisine had the best dessert in it” Talk about a slap in the face. I’m a baker, and my hubby tells me that the best dessert he’s had came out of a frozen meal?!?! The nerve of that guy! In a fit of jealousy I set out to prove him wrong and created my Jealousy Chocolate Cherry Mini-Cupcakes. Hubby did say that the cupcakes were better and even apologized for his stupidity. I kind of cheated because I didn’t have anything to make cupcakes with, but they were still good.

Jealousy Chocolate Cherry Mini-Cupcakes
Devil’s Food Cake Mix
Fresh cherries – pitted and quartered
Chocolate Frosting (I prefer the Whipped kind)

Make cake mix as directed on box. Mix in about 3/4 of the cherries.
Fill mini-cupcake pan (lined with papers).
Bake as directed and allow to cool completely.
Frost with chocolate frosting and garnish with cherries.

    I love white chocolate! It tastes especially good in cheesecake (and blondies, too). Can’t wait to try this recipe.

      I haven’t made a white chocolate cheesecake yet, but I bet the subtleness would be great in cheesecake.

    I never realized blondies had white chocolate! These look so good! I looove white chocolate but love it even more with a burst of semi-sweet too.

      Not all blondies are created equal. Some have white chocolate and some don’t. I think from now on, I’m going to use this recipe for my base recipe for blondies.

    Oooooh these look great! I’m in the same boat with white chocolate. I loooove dark, and always get a little turned off by the “fakeness” of white chocolate, but lately, it’s been a welcome addition.

    ok, so i’m wondering if my appeal to a middle of the road crowd could be semisweet chocolate? what do you think?

      I think semi-sweet would work just fine.
