Tired of the same ol' cupcakes piled high with sugary sweet icing? I just discovered the recipe for these Cherry Cordial Cupcakes. Don't they look insanely delicious!? I have my daughter home from school today (sick girly) so I think we'll make these. Should be fun and yum!
1 pkg. (8-oz.) cream cheese, softened
3 eggs, divided
1/2 cup sugar
1 (21-oz.) can Comstock® or Wilderness® More Fruit Cherry Fruit Filling, divided
2 Tbsp. coffee flavored liqueur
1/2 cup chocolate chips
