It’s Valentine’s week so I figured I better post a chocolate recipe. And these cupcakes are the perfect treat to bring to Valentine’s party or the perfect dessert to serve to your sweetie after your Valentine’s dinner celebration. Because really, who doesn’t love a cupcake? Especially a cupcake topped with luscious chocolate ganache.
I could probably eat ganache by the spoonful.
Really, it’s dangerous how easy it is to make: heat heavy cream, add in some chocolate and stir. Once the chocolate melts, it creates a glossy, heavenly sauce.
As you can see from the picture, it can get a little messy as it likes to pour over the sides of the cupcakes, so no need to worry about perfect technique here. If you don’t want to worry about wasting any ganache because it gets stuck on the cupcake wrapper, simply bake these cupcakes sans wrapper, just be sure to grease the pan first.
