Ganache

1/3
cup whipping cream
1/2

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups. In small bowl, toss chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon of the cake mix.

  • 3 In heavy 1-quart saucepan, heat whipping cream over medium-high heat until hot but not boiling; remove from heat. Stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips until melted. Let stand 10 minutes. Dip tops of cupcakes in ganache. Top with miniature chocolate chips, grated orange peel or ground hazelnuts, if desired. Store loosely covered.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
