Chocolate Cherry Cupcake Bites and Chocolate Cherry Cobbler


Recently, I was given the opportunity to try a Duncan Hines product of my choosing, as well as a Comstock pie filling of my choosing thanks to the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program. I chose to try the triple chocolate cake mix and the light cherry pie filling.

When deciding what to make with these ingredients, I knew I wanted to make something small so that it would be Weight Watchers friendly. I came up with these tiny treats. They are moist and full of flavor, so moist, in fact, that the cupcake liners just slip right off. I like them best warm, but they are tasty room-temperature as well. This made a whole bunch of cupcake bites, so I froze them in a Ziploc bag.

I had some cake mix and cherries left over, so I decided to put the cherries in a muffin cup and pour some cake mix on top, having no idea what would happen. What resulted was a kind of cherry cobbler with a chocolate cake top instead of a biscuit-like top. Delicious! {This would have been more ideal if I had some individual ramekins to use, but since I didn't, I just scooped the cooked cobbler into small bowls. Not as pretty, but still yummy.}


Don't forget! My giveaway ends at 8:00 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day. Enter here!








Chocolate Cherry Cupcake Bites

What You Need
1 box Duncan Hines triple chocolate cake mix
1/3 cup water
3 eggs
1/3 cup canola oil
1 can Comstock light cherry pie filling
powdered sugar or frosting
mini cupcake liners

What To Do
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line mini muffin tins with mini cupcake liners.
2. Prepare the cake mix according to the directions on the box. Do not pour into pan or bake. {Note: Instead of topping cupcakes with fudge mixture, mix fudge into batter. Trust me - it will work much better for these tiny cupcakes.}
3. Pour a small amount {approx. 1/2 a spoonful} of batter into each cupcake liner.
4. Add 1 cherry to each.
5. Add more cake mix, until cherry is covered and cupcake liner is filled.


6. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. {Note: Your toothpick may still come out red from the cherries.}
7. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes and then gently remove to a wire rack to finish cooling.



8. If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar or top with frosting.
