Ingredients – Cupcakes
  • 1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1/4 cup Butter, melted
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 2 cups Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips, melted
  • 1 cup Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips (NOT melted)
  • 2/3 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
Directions – Cupcakes
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 Degrees F.  Spray or line two 12-cup cupcake tins. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the Flour, Baking Powder and Salt.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the Eggs, Sugar and Vanilla about 3-5 minutes, or until light and fluffy.  Add the melted Chocolate and melted Butter, continue beating until well-combined.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the chocolate mixture and whisk until just combined. Stir in the (not melted) Chocolate Chips.
  5. Spoon the batter into the cupcake tins/liners, filling about 2/3 of the way to the top.
  6. Bake about 10-15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out MOSTLY clean (some moistness is fine).
  7. Allow to cool completely before frosting.
Ingredients – White Ganache
  • 2 cups Vanilla or White Chocolate Chips
  • 1/3 cup Heavy Cream
Directions – White Ganache
  1. In a small saucepan, over medium heat, bring the Heavy Cream to a simmer. Remove from the heat and add the Vanilla (or White Chocolate) Chips.
  2. Stir until the chips are fully melted and the mixture is smooth.
  3. Chill about 1-2 hours, then allow to sit at room temperature about 30 minutes up to an hour – just until it’s the right firmness to frost the cupcakes.
Notes – Use chocolate shavings/curls for garnish
