Chocolate Ganache Cupcakes

I found this delicious looking recipe on the foodnetwork and decided to give it a shoot. The recipe turned out great my testers loved them, I thought something was missing not sure what it was, I will try it again and tweak it more lol...

  • 1 stick salted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 5-large eggs, at room temperature
  • 16 fluid ounces Hershey's chocolate syrup
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unbleached flour
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules

For the ganache:

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 8 oz semisweet or dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee granules


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with paper liners.
Cream the butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, 1 at a time. Mix in the chocolate syrup and vanilla. Add the flour and coffee granules and mix until just combined. Don't overbeat, or the cupcakes will be tough.
Scoop the batter into the muffin cups and bake for 30 minutes, or until just set in the middle. Don't overbake! Let cool thoroughly in the muffin pan.

For the ganache, warm the heavy cream, chocolate chips, and instant coffee in the top of a double boiler over simmering water until smooth and warm, stirring occasionally or microwave and stir every 30 seconds until melted

Dip the tops of the cupcakes into the ganache while warm

the ganache recipe makes more glaze than you need, I cut the recipe in half

1/4 cup of heavy cream
4-6 oz of semi sweet or dark chocolate chips
1/4 t. instant coffee granules

*If you have a dessert recipe that you are having trouble with or afraid to try, please send it to me along with a picture and I will give it a shot….

P.S. I don’t like coconut 

I hope you enjoy

Bon appétit in Hungarian - Jó étvágyat!
