Super easy chocolate and cherry vegan cupcakes.



1 Box of chocolate cake mix

12oz Can of black cherry flavored seltzer

48 Canned pie cherries

1/2 Cup vegan butter (I used Earth Balance)

3 1/2 Cup powdered sugar

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 Cup liquid from pie cherry can


Combine the cake mix and the seltzer. Spoon the mixture into a lined cupcake pan. Place a pie cherry on top of each cupcake.

Follow the baking direction on the cake mix. Allow to cool before frosting.

For frosting: beat the vegan butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and pie cherry liquid together until well combined, about 3 mins.

Top each cupcake with a cherry.
