Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line two muffin tins with cupcake liners.
  2. Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Mix in milk. Add flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda; beat until batter is smooth.
  3. Pour batter into prepared muffin tins, filling each liner about half-full.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, about 25 minutes.
  5. Cut tops off the cooled cupcakes. Remove a small amount of the center of each cupcake. Fill the centers with a small dab of black cherry jam. Put the tops back on, covering the jam.
  6. Combine heavy cream, sucralose sweetener, and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Whip until soft peaks form. Place in the refrigerator until chilled.
  7. Place whipped cream in a piping bag fitted with a round or star tip. Frost each cupcake with a swirl of whipped cream. Top each one with a maraschino cherry and grated chocolate.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Use sugar in place of Splenda®, if desired. I find that the whipped cream holds up longer in the fridge when I use sucralose.
  • If you don't have a piping bag, you can cut the corner off a resealable plastic bag and slip the piping tip into the corner.
