Easy Dark Chocolate-Cherry Cupcakes

I've been cheating with these delicious cupcakes by using pre-made cake mix and frosting.  But, the results are amazing!  You get these super moist, decadent cupcakes with the cherry surprise flavor.  Yummm!  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-1 (15.25 oz) box dark chocolate fudge cake mix
-1/2 cup vegetable oil
-1 1/3 cups water
-3 large eggs
-cherry preserves (we prefer Smucker's)
-14 oz whipped cream cheese frosting
-maraschino cherries
-chocolate sprinkles
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F.  Line two muffin pans with cupcake liners and set aside.
In your mixer's bowl, combine the cake mix, oil, water and eggs.  Beat until nice and smooth.  Pour batter evenly in prepared pans. Place a generous teaspoon of cherry preserves in the middle of each cupcake.
Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Remove from the oven and cool in pans for 10 minutes.  Remove cupcakes from pans and place on wire rack.  Cool completely.
Once cooled, frost each cupcake with the whipped cream cheese frosting and top with some chocolate sprinkles and a maraschino cherry.  Enjoy!
