Legit Black Forest Cupcakes


These aren't your typical Black Forest Cupcakes. Forget the bright red maraschino cherries and bland whipped topping - this rich chocolate cake is enhanced by espresso, dark sweet cherries, and cherry kirsch (aka booze). I've made these with a couple variations over the years but I think I have decided that this is my go-to favorite version. Feel free to adjust the amount of coffee and alcohol in the filling and frosting to your desired tastes.
