Chocolate Cupcakes with Bourbon Cherry Filling

I made the cupcakes in these cute little cups in honor of the Sochi Olympics but then forgot to actually post the recipe until now.

Chocolate cupcakes
1 cup cherry preserves (I like Bon Maman for this recipe)
2 T bourbon
pitted sour cherries from a jar, drained

Use any chocolate cupcake recipe you like; the Hershey chocolate cake recipe is a good one for this recipe but you can use your favorite. Using a paring knife or a cupcake corer (who knew such a thing existed???), cut a hole about an inch deep and round. Go ahead and eat these little morsels of cake- they don’t really count because they’re so small… fill the center with the cherry jam mixture and top with a sour cherry. Dust with powdered sugar.
