Vegan Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes

mini chocolate cherry cupcakes

I made these mini valentine cupcakes for Mas using the basic chocolate cupcake recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World. The frosting was a veganized buttercream that ended up being a tiny bit runny after I added the cherry puree. I put the rest in the fridge after I frosted these three and it firmed up really well. Did I mention that the VCTOTW chocolate cupcake recipe is the best vegan chocolate baked anything in the world? It is. The recipe is posted here. I would definitely recommend adding the almond extract.

I so agree, that chocolate cupcake recipe has gotten me more compliments than anything else i've baked. Those look so festive!

It really is delicious--and totally foolproof! I can generally manage to ruin just about any recipe, but this one always turns out great.
