  1. In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, water, oil and eggs; mix well. Spoon batter by 1/4 cupfuls into paper-lined muffin cups. Spoon a rounded teaspoon of pie filling onto the center of each cupcake. Set remaining pie filling aside. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted on an angle toward the center comes out clean. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Frost cupcakes; top with one cherry from pie filling. Serve additional pie filling with cupcakes or refrigerate or another use.

I love the combination of cherry and chocolate, and I could see the potential in this recipe. However, I was a little frustrated that about 1/3 of the cupcakes were sagging a bit because the ch...

Great flavor combination, and easy recipe which I would rate 5 stars with a few changes I will make next time. I followed this recipe as written. I think the teaspoon of filling is a bit too muc...

These cupcakes were easy to make and very yummy. The only problem was that they were very messy. The cherries inside fell out as soon as you un wrapped the cupcake! I haven't tried to fix it, bu...

These cupcakes are delicious. I changed it by using cream cheese frosting, which made it taste like a mini cherry cheesecake. Fantastic

I made these cupcakes for a party last weekend and they were very good. I used a chocolate fudge cake mix and cream cheese frosting. My only "issue" with them was that the cherries sank to the b...
