Chocolate Cherry Cake Cupcakes
These are the most amazing cupcakes and honestly, I have never tasted another cupcake like it. Rich, delicious and easy to make, these are cupcake you can surprise the family with for a weeknight dessert, send into school for the class, bring to a party, or even a bake sale. These cupcakes are sweet but not too sweet and you will not miss the frosting at all, thanks to the powdered sugar and the chocolate covered cheery on top. These cupcakes are perfect no matter the occasion, or no occasion at all.
How to store chocolate cherry cupcakes
These cupcake cakes can be stored at room temperature. While some cupcakes need to be stored in the refrigerator, there are no ingredients in this cupcake that must be refrigerated. The important thing about these cupcakes when it comes to storing them is to make sure they are covered well in either plastic or an airtight container. This will protect the cupcakes from the air and help them to last longer.
How Long Do Cherry Cake Cupcakes Last?
When you make these cherry cake cupcakes, the cupcakes will last about 4 to 5 days. While storing the cupcakes in the refrigerator can help them last longer, the cupcakes will taste drier when they are stored in the refrigerator.
Can Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes be Frozen
When making these cupcakes, if you have o=more than you can eat before they spoil, you can freeze them to make them last longer. With these cupcakes, I like to freeze them individually so I can take some out at a time. This prevents me from having too many to eat and I don’t have to worry about them spoiling.
How to make chocolate covered cherries
Making chocolate covered cherries is much easier than you think it is. Simply, take the cherries and place them on a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper or wax paper. Freeze them. Once frozen, melt your chocolate chips in the microwave. Bring the cherries out and dip each one into the chocolate. Shake off any excess chocolate and place it back on the wax paper. Freeze the cherries again until they are hard and the chocolate is set. Add a chocolate covered cherry to the top of each cooled cupcake. You might want to make a few extra cherries because they are hard to resist, and trust me when I saw, you are not going to want to resist.
