Simple Cherry Chocolate Cupcakes
A friend gave me the recipe for these super simple cupcakes years ago. They are a perfect treat to make when you are in a hurry as it only calls for a few ingredients. The best part, these cherry chocolate cupcakes taste like you spent hours in the kitchen making them.
Create a little whimsy and add some cherry flavored cotton candy to the tops of these pretty little cakes right before serving.
