Hi Kristy in the Rada Kitchen and today I want to share a recipe with you that is out of our “Stuffed Cookies and Cupcakes” recipe book. It is Cherry Chocolate Kisses. It is little mini cupcakes and we’re going put a Hershey’s Kiss in the middle so you can surprise that special someone. It would be great for Valentine’s Day or any occasion.

So I just mixed up a box of cherry chip cake mix. I followed the directions on the back of the box: just took oil and water and eggs. Then I’m going to fill these mini cupcake liners a ½ to ¾ full and I’m going to put them in a mini baking pan. You are probably going to get about 50 out of this. So plenty to share.

Now we have our cupcake liners filled. We are going to press a Hershey’s Dark Chocolate Kiss into the center of each one. Meanwhile you’ll want your oven preheated to 350 degrees. Now we’re going to put these in the oven for 8-11 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the edge comes out clean.

So my Cherry Chocolate Kiss Cupcakes are ready to frost. I’m using the Fluffy White Frosting. I also have a video on how to make that. This party spreader works really well to frost these little mini cupcakes. And here you can see where I cut one in half and it has that little Hershey surprise in there. So you can frost them, put a little cherry on top, and make a great Valentine or Sweetheart treat or any occasion. And that’s one of our recipes in our “Stuffed Cookies and Cupcakes” cookbook.
