Raspberry Filled Chocolate Amaretto Cupcakes

We have been so busy lately that I didn’t even get a chance to bake the usual Valentine Goodies that I bake every year. I decided to take advantage of being housebound because of the impossible snow this week, and bake one of the recipes I had been wanting to try for awhile.
