I love chocolate! In fact, I eat chocolate every day. Literally. Everyday… One-piece… Like a vitamin!
Let me explain. Years ago, a friend gave me a generous gift of various chocolates she had picked up while traveling all over Europe. I wanted to gobble them all down in one sitting! BUT…I decided to put them in the fridge and enjoy them slowly, tasting one piece each day, until they were gone.
Since then, I’ve developed the habit of eating a little piece of chocolate every day. Eating chocolate not only makes me happy, but it also keeps the chocolate cravings to a minimum!
There are obviously times when a little piece of chocolate isn’t nearly enough. That’s when I make these go-to chocolate cupcakes.
The fudge ganache adds richness (for those who are serious about chocolate). However, these cupcakes are just as good with a light dusting of powdered sugar.
Key techniques to keep in mind when making this recipe:
Very simple things to remember when making this fudge,
- Use quality ingredients
- Bring eggs & buttermilk to room temperature
- DO NOT OVERMIX
- Disperse batter evenly
- Preheat your oven
- Bake cupcakes on the center rack in the middle of your oven
- Allow cupcakes to cool for a couple of minutes, then remove them from the tin.
