These cherry chocolate cupcakes are cupcakes to eat not after a meal but as a meal. Many of my cupcakes are dense, but these cherry chocolate cupcakes are chocolate boulders. The batter is so chocolate-laden that eating one of these cupcakes equates to consuming a solid chocolate bar and a cupcake simultaneously. Stop reading now if you want a dainty, frilly cupcake for a bridal or baby shower.
I made two different kinds of frosting for these chocolate cherry cupcakes: maraschino cherry buttercream and chocolate black cherry cream cheese. Both were huge hits with my tasters (they said the frostings were their favorite part of the cupcakes). My personal preference, however, was to eat the cupcakes sans frosting with a tall glass of milk.
