Chocolate Cherry Coke Cupcake
Honestly, I was a little hesitant about trying out this recipe when I found it...while I love my Coca-Cola, I'm really not that big on cherry. Don't get me wrong - I love cherry airheads, snow cones, jolly ranchers...just not baked things - blech. Not my cup of tea. So, finally got around to trying this out last night...and wow, was I ever proven wrong! The flavor combination is so unexpectedly wonderful - just perfect! And it really does make such a lovely cupcake! :) Chocolate cupcakes infused with Coca-Cola, cherry buttercream icing, drizzled with a thick chocolate sauce (also infused with a little Coca-Cola) topped off nicely with a cherry! I can hear the Monkeys' song in the background "...now I'm a believer!"
