Chocolate Ganache

  • 1 cup Semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup Heavy cream


  • Bake vanilla cupcakes and allow them to cool down completely.
  • While the cupcakes are baking, make homemade vanilla pudding or pastry cream filling.
  • Also make chocolate ganache. Heat chocolate chips and heavy cream in a saucepan. Mix until chocolate chips are fully melted. Let the mixture cool down and thicken a bit.
  • Once the cupcakes cool down, remove the liners and slice the cupcake in half with a sharp knife.
  • Pour about 1 tablespoon of the filling (it should be cool and thick) on the bottom portion and then stick the other half of the cupcake on top.
  • Pour 1-2 tablespoons of ganache on top of the cupcake and let it drip a little along the sides. Enjoy!
