Chocolate Almond Cherry Cupcakes!
Delicious little devils, with vanilla cherry icing. The vanilla icing recipe is super easy. I was searching for a recipe that did not use as much butter as all of my other ones. This one fit the bill perfectly and it was really yummy.
Easy Vanilla Icing
2 Tbs of unsalted butter (softened)
2 cups of powdered sugar
2 Tbs of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cream the butter with mixer until fluffy about 30 seconds. Add powdered sugar, then milk and vanilla. Mix until well blended about 1 to 2 mins. Cut a maraschino cherry in half to top the cupcakes. I even spooned a little of the cherry juice on top. Just a few drops!
