So what can be better than a cupcake with buttercream frosting? How about one that combines buttercream with sinfully rich chocolate ganache? My thoughts, exactly!
Cupcakes with Chocolate Ganache and Buttercream
Vanilla Cupcake and buttercream recipe
cupcakes and buttercream
7 oz. 70% cocoa chocolate, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup heavy cream
chop the chocolate as well as you can and place in a large glass bowl. Heat heavy cream to a boil and pour over the chocolate. Mix constantly until all chocolate has melted and allow mixture to sit in a cool spot for about 20-30 minutes to thicken - or until it is spreading consistency. Spread evenly over tops of cupcakes.
Pipe buttercream over the edges of the cupcake.
