Karen's Easy Chocolate Coffee Ganache Cup Cakes

Sometimes Mom's need a little treat too! Karen's Easy Chocolate Coffee Ganache Cup Cakes are not really for the kids.

The next time you have to host a Parent Coffee for school, host a party or meeting, here is the recipe to make it extra special.

Ganache (Ga - nash) is a frosting made with Chocolate and Heavy Cream

  • One Box Chocolate Cake Mix (Eggs & Oil)
  • 16 oz. Semisweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • Instant Coffee Powder or Espresso Coffee Powder

Heat oven per instructions on Cake Mix.

Prepare muffin tins with paper liners. Prepare the Chocolate Cake Mix per instructions on box.

To the Cake Mix add 1 teaspoon Instant Coffee Powder. Fill cups 3/4 full and bake.

For the Ganache:

Using a double boiler or a glass bowl on top of a sauce pan.

If you are using the bowl method fill the sauce pan 1/2 way full with hot water, bring to a simmer, place bowl over sauce pan to use as your double boiler. This prevents the chocolate from burning and melts nicely.

Melt your Chocolate Chips with the Heavy Cream and 1/2 teaspoon Coffee Powder stirring consistantly until melted and smooth.

Hold the cupcake in your hands, dip and swirl into the Chocolate, set on rack to let the Ganache set.

Serve with coffee or tea.
