They turned out great! I just didn't add the Hershey's Kiss because I knew that as soon as the cupcakes cooled then so would the Kiss. Which meant there would be a hard chunk of chocolate in my gooey cupcakes, and that would not be a good thing. Oh, and I also put a ton of cherry jam in the frosting. Way more than 3 tbs.

My review is only for the frosting. The flavor and color were excellent. I wish there had been a little more detail on the method. I have never made a buttercream with the addition of cream. Although my butter was softened (for about 30 minutes), when I added the cream, I was concerned that the frosting was going to "break". I started to wonder if I was supposed to whip the cream first and fold in, instead. It finally did come together but it also looked slightly broken when I put it on the cake. I immediately refrigerated my frosted cake and I think that helped to firm everything up, but I was quite nervous during the process since I needed the cake right away with no room for error! I will definitely make this again but may soften the butter for a few hours or bring the cream to room temperature.

Made these for work. One co-worker says she never uses this word but they were"scrumptious". The best cupcakes I have ever had:)
