A few weeks ago I let you in on a little secret, that I shamelessly eat cherries everyday and probably go through pounds every week. I don’t know what to say other than I simply love them and cherish the short season when they are in abundance. This recipe combines two star crossed lovers chocolates and cherries in a light, sweet cupcake for only 3 points and 100 calories. Not a cherry fan consider replacing the cherries with raspberries, strawberries, or just leaving them out. The base recipe for the chocolate cupcakes comes from Chocolate Covered Katie, a wonderful blog full of healhty, mostly vegan desserts.
