One Last Hurrah

Before we embarked on our kitchen remodel, I needed to make one last batch of cupcakes in my "old" kitchen sort of like one last hurrah. So I decided to tackle a project that I had been on my to-do list for quite a long time -- making a homemade version of the delicious creme-filled cupcakes that I grew up eating.

As the base, I used my standby Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Chocolate Cake recipe and then I made my own mix of Marshmallow Fluff, sugar and heavy creme for the filling and this amazing chocolate ganache for the top.

I used a pastry bag with a round tip to add the filling to the cupcakes after they cooled. It is really important to make sure that the cupcakes are completely cooled otherwise the filling will melt. After the cupcakes were filled I dipped them in the cooled ganache and put them in the refrigerator to set.

The results were awesome and I would definitely make these again. I was really impressed at how easy this project was and how well the finished cupcakes turned out. Most importantly, everyone loved them!
