Chocolate Cream Filled Cupcakes




Back in the winter, I posted my Famous Chocolate Cake. And dang, it sure is good. I have been wanting to make the recipe into cupcakes for awhile. Last week I finally made them for work.

This week, since I had left over ganache, I made them again for some workers who are here tearing out our garage floor and part of the driveway and replacing it. (Quite a job!)
Always good to bribe the workers! They seemed really happy and surprised to get cuppies. Of course I was glad to make them!

You can find the recipe for the cake here. Below is the recipe for the filling.

Cream Filling
2 T shortening
2 T Butter
1 C 10x sugar
3 T Hersheys Dulce LeLeche Dessert topping
Milk- to thin
In a large bowl, beat butter and shortening together until smooth. Blend in confectioners' sugar. Gradually beat in topping. Beat until light and fluffy. Add milk as needed to desired consistency. Fill a pastry sleeve and pipe into cupcake.

There's something about a really shiny ganache topping that makes your head turn and say WOW.

Hi Fran, got to your blog from the DB forum :-) The cake recipe looks pretty big - how many cupcakes did it make? Also, when you say "cream filled" - do you cut the baked cc's open and put filling inside? What do you mean?

!hanks for the comments! This recipe makes about 30 cupcakes. I filled the cupcakes after they were baked using a pastry tip shoved in the center of the cake and squeezing in the filling from a pastry bag
