- 3 Eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Pinch of salt
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 tsp Heavy Cream
- 1 can Cherry Pie Filling
- 1 box Dark Chocolate Cake Mix
- Tillen Farms Rum Bada Bing Cherries
- 1/2 cup Chiquitita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 cup Kohler Dark Chocolate Brandy, divided
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate cocoa powder, divided
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix Eggs, Chiquitita Olive Oil, water and 1/4 cup Kohler Dark Chocolate brandy together in a medium bowl. Add cake mix, mix well. Scoop into greased cupcake pan and bake for 19 to 23 minutes.
In a separate small bowl, mix cherry pie filling and 2 Tbsp Kohler Dark Chocolate Brandy, set aside.
In another medium bowl, beat butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, salt & heavy cream. Split frosting equally into two small bowls. In bowl 1, add 1/8 cup dark chocolate cocoa powder and 1 tsp Kohler Dark Chocolate Brandy. In Bowl 2 add 1 tsp Tillen Farms Rum Bada Bing Cherry juice. In a pastry bag (using the large frosting tip), put the chocolate frosting on one side and the cherry frosting on the other side (in the same bag), set aside.
Once the cupcakes are done baking, remove from oven and let cool. Once cooled, core out the center of each cupcake and fill with the cherry pie filling mixture (about 3 tsp of filling per cupcake). Pipe the frosting on each cupcake. Top each cupcake with a Tillen Farms Bada Bing Cherry and dust with cocoa powder.
