Chocolate Cupcake filled with Chukar Cherries- Chocolate Cherry Dessert Sauce

Chef Frank Magana


12 Chocolate Cupcakes- your favorite recipe- unfrosted | 1 Jar Chukar Cherries Chocolate Cherry Dessert Sauce | 1 Batch Vanilla Butter Cream Frosting- again, your favorite recipe



With a small knife, cut-out center top of the cupcake, scoop out about 1 tablespoon (eat what you scoop out!), 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. I top mine with Chukar Cherry Chipotle Dipped Cherries (for a little added kick!!) Enjoy!
