The ultimate Triple Chocolate Cupcakes recipe – you will see!
I couldn’t pass up the chance to make a chocolately, decadent treat in honor of Valentine’s Day. They are pretty much best buds after all. And, can you believe there’s not a single cupcake recipe on this blog? I couldn’t. I even had to double check my archives to make sure one didn’t slip in there somewhere. But, there wasn’t a single one to be found. Craziness, I tell you. So I’m here today to share my inaugural cupcake recipe with you and what better way to start it off than with something über chocolatey.
I think cupcakes are a great project for beginning bakers. They’re less intimidating than layered cakes and much easier to decorate. And besides, they’re just plain cute.
These cupcakes start off with a moist chocolate cupcake that’s both lights in flavor and texture. I prefer my cupcakes not to be too sweet because they’re going to be topped with all sorts of sugary goodness. I decided to go a bit chocolate crazy this time around. There are three layers of ganache – in the center of the cupcakes, directly on top of the cupcakes and drizzled on the frosting. A rich chocolate frosting swirls on the top with a sprinkling of chopped chocolate. A chocolate lovers dream for sure.
The best part about these is, once they’ve been sitting in the fridge chilling out, they become even richer and the texture of the frosting becomes almost truffle like. One cupcake is definitely enough to get your chocolate fix. At first, I was worried the frosting might be too sweet but paired with this cupcake and the silky ganache, it’s pure magic.
The frosting sets up very quickly so you’ll want to use it right away. Also, it’s set up nice and firm so it’s easy to cover the cupcakes loosely with plastic wrap, once they’ve set up, without ruining the piping job.
