Cherry Hostess Cup Cakes

1 Box of your favorite Dark Chocolate Cake mix

1-8 ounce package cream cheese
1/3 C sugar
1/8 tsp. Salt
1 egg
½ tsp. Vanilla
2 Tbs of chopped cherries

16 oz. Semisweet chocolate chips, melted
16 oz. Sour cream

Set oven at 350°.
Prepare filling by whipping until smooth and place in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes.  Prepare chocolate cake mix per the directions of the box cake.
Fill each muffin paper 2/3 full of cake mix and put a dollop of cream cheese mix on top.
Bake 14 to 15 minutes for regular size muffins.  Cheese mix sinks to center of cupcake while baking, which is cool to watch.  Hand whip the frosting till smooth.  Spread or pipe onto the cakes.

Note: These freeze well.  I store my in the refrigerator and serve cool because I like my cold.

Yields about 2 dozen.
