Cherry Almond Cupcakes
(yes it is only a cake mix....please forgive me)
Super quick and easy cupcakes!
1. Bake cherry chip cake mix according to package directions. Cool.
2. Soften 2 sticks of butter, beat until creamy. Add 2 Tbs milk and 1 Tbs almond flavoring. Mix in 1 3/4 pounds powdered sugar and red or pink food coloring to desired shade. Mix until spreadable consistency. I piped frosting on in swirl design.
3. Mix 2 Tbs Hershey's chocolate syrup in to 1/2 c chocolate frosting, I used left over canned frosting like Pillsbury . Heat in microwave 20 sec and drizzle over cupcakes, top with cherry or chocolate covered cherries.
this is a quick way to dress up an ordinary cupcake and turn it into something a little more special.
