Hi folks! I want to make chocolate cupcakes for Hubby's coworkers... was planning to top with a poured ganache and then decorate with candy conversation hearts. Basically, I want to keep it simple! (I have a toddler and newborn right now.) Is there a simple, premade before-you-bake filling I could use to jazz up these cupcakes? I've heard of people dropping a ball of chilled ganache into the center of the batter before baking to get a chocolatey ooey center. What about a piece of a candy bar, like a snickers or something? Anyone ever tried that? Any other suggestions?
I know what you mean about time. I have a 3.5 year old and 22 month old at home.
Why don't you try just adding a fresh raspberry into the batter? If you use a candy bar I would use a mini Peanut Butter Cup. Good Luck!
I dont know how it would bake up but I bet it would be good to do a candy bar. Ive done chocolate chip cookie dough before it was pretty good and stayed more dough like than cookie like.
You can use the cubed caramels that come prewrapped in the candy aisle. After baking they are nice, soft and gooey
Nestle Dulce de Leche. Just drop in a dollop before baking. Since it's not hard, it should stay nice and soft after cooling.
Try a peppermint patty, it's delicious when baked into the cupcake!!
I made a pb filling once with peanut butter, powdered sugar, and butter-- form it into a ball, freeze it a bit ,and drop it in. They tasted GREAT but made the wrappers super greasy. I've seen similar things done with frozen cookie dough and keep meaning to try it.
