Triple Chocolate Ganache Cupcakes are a decadent treat for chocolate lovers like myself. A chocolate cake recipe made into cupcakes topped with chocolate ganache and mini chocolate chips were the perfect dessert for our Super Bowl party last weekend.
Did your favorite team win the Super Bowl? Were you rooting for the Ravens all along? I may not be a big football fan but I sure do love Super Bowl food! My mother in-law did a great job hosting a super bowl party for our family and my contribution to the party were these triple chocolate ganache cupcakes
So random fact: I shopped at Safeway in the town that 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick grew up. We live a few hours away from San Francisco and this particular town is where Kaepernick grew up since he was four. Most stores display their Super Bowl party foods, but Safeway did an impressive job with theirs this year. They even had a giant banner with Colin Kaepernick’s picture on it hanging above one of the displays (you can see more pictures on Google+).
While there we picked up a few party essentials like chips, dips, and chocolate for the cupcakes. My mother in law put on an impressive food display for the big game. I love her white and blue dishes!
I may or may not have fallen asleep from the end of the second quarter until two minutes left in the fourth. Apparently I missed a great game but the last two minutes were pretty intense wouldn’t you say? I also may or may not have made a comment about how similar the Ravens coach and 49ers coach looked alike. Everyone laughed because apparently John and Jim are brothers…who knew, right? HA!
For this recipe I used the Hershey’s “Perfectly Chocolate” cake recipe and made my own chocolate ganache frosting then topped the cupcakes with mini chocolate chips. They were a big hit at our Super Bowl party!
Thanks for stopping by!
