[Recipe Share] Boston Creme Pie Cupcakes

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

I posted a picture of these cupcakes on Instagram on Sunday that I made for Seth's (early) birthday celebration and I got a lot of requests for the recipe so I thought I would re-share.

For as long as I can remember, Seth has always loved Boston Cream Pie. I used to order him an actual cake of it for his birthday but then a couple years ago, I found a recipe for a cupcakes version and thought I would surprise him with a different version of his favorite. Since he LOVED them, this year was no different.

Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes

Ingredients :
24 cake-mix yellow cupcakes, cooled and unwrapped (I used a butter golden mix)
1 (3.4 oz) box French Vanilla instant pudding
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream

Directions :
Make cupcakes according to directions on box.
Mix together pudding, cream, powdered sugar, milk, and sour cream. 
Beat on medium speed until stiff peaks form.

Cut each cupcake in half.

And add a dollop of filling.

Put top back on cupcake.

And frost with ganache.

1 cup heavy whipping cream
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat cream in sauce pan until it comes to a boil. 
Remove from heat, pour over chocolate in a mixing bowl. 
Stir to mix together. Let cool slightly.

Keep in refrigerator until ready to serve.
