    So good! I changed the recipe a little... used a boxed devil's food cake mix because I was short on time, and omitted the drizzled chocolate over the top because I didn't think it needed it. They came out really pretty and tasted great. Thanks!

    This was a really good recipe! I made 1/2 of the batter into cupcakes, and made the other half into a mini tub-cake with chocolate and cherries in the middle. I took a picture just for fun. Thanks for the recipe!!:-)
