Yummy Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes

Aren't these fun looking? I made these from a Duncan Hines cake mix and frosting - all in one box. It's the best tasting cake I've ever had. In fact, my family all said they were fantastic! 

I have to admit my 11 year old granddaughter decorated them with a frosting kit I bought for her. I think they came out amazing looking, don't you? My granddaughter is quite the "tween" at 11 years old... going on 21. Gosh they are grown up at 11!

Do you like chocolate? I do. I also like Reese's peanut butter cups. I put them together and it's amazing. Click HERE if you want to find out how to make them.
