Black Forest Cupcakes

Black Forest Cake is a sweet combination of Chocolate and Cherry, a classic cake choice. Making it in a handheld cupcake form only seems right! These moist, chocolate cupcakes are topped with a creamy, cherry frosting and filled with the sweet cherry cream! Read on for the full recipe to make these Black Forest Cupcakes!

Black Forest Cupcakes

Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Place cupcake liners in a pan.

In a large bowl mix flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt. Gradually add in the eggs, buttermilk, vanilla extract, and butter. Mix well until there are no lumps.

Fill the cupcake liners leaving about an inch from the top.

Place in oven and bake for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Let them cool completely.

Once they’re cool you can use a cupcake corer (or a knife) to remove a small circle out of the middle of each cupcake.

To prepare the frosting you’ll need cool whip, frozen cherries, and brown sugar. Mix them together in the food processor. Once it’s thoroughly mixed you can spoon some into the middle of the cupcke.

This frosting is so yummy, try not to eat it all before you get it on the cupcakes! Use the rest to cover the top!

This frosting is a little thin, but it really does stick to the top (kind of like the frosting on hostess cupcakes). It’s perfect because it pairs so well with the chocolate!

Finally, Garnish them with a cherry. Refrigerate for about twenty minutes before serving!
