- 12 chocolate cupcakes your favorite recipe, unfrosted
- 1 jar Chukar Chocolate Cherry Dessert Sauce
- 1 batch vanilla buttercream frosting your favorite recipe
- Chukar Chipotle Chocolate Cherries
- With a small knife, cut out the center top of each cupcake, scoop out about 1 tablespoon. Do this to all the cupcakes.
- Fill each cupcake with 1 tablespoon Chocolate Cherry Dessert Sauce and allow to rest 10 minutes for sauce to firm up. Then top with frosting. It’s easier to pipe the frosting from a pastry bag since the sauce isn’t firm enough to frost with a knife.
- Top each cupcake with a dark chocolate Chipotle Cherry (for a little added kick). Enjoy!
