Melted Witch Cupcakes

 Yields:  24 pcs
Prep time: 1 hr
Total Cooking Time:  1 hr

 

INGREDIENTS:

24 chocolate cupcakes, baked and cooled (see chocolate cupcake recipes)

Green buttercream frosting (recipe below)

Chocolate ganache (recipe below or see chocolate ganache recipes)

24 Hershey Kisses, unwrapped

12 Oreo cookies, separated with the frosting scraped off

Buttercream Frosting:

3 sticks salted butter, slightly softened

3 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/3 cup heavy cream

6 cups powdered sugar

a few drops green and yellow food coloring

Chocolate Ganache:

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup heavy cream

4 Tablespoons light corn syrup or honey

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

Prepare frosting: In the bowl of your mixer, beat butter, vanilla, and heavy cream on medium low speed until combined. With the mixer on low, slowly add powdered sugar and a few drops of yellow and green food coloring until just combined. Increase mixer speed to high and beat for one minute, until fluffy and smooth.

Using tiny dabs of frosting, attach Hershey Kisses to Oreo halves to form witch hats. Set aside.

Frost cupcakes generously and place in the refrigerator for about an hour, until frosting is slightly chilled.

Prepare ganache: In a microwave-safe bowl, heat chocolate chips and cream, stopping every 20 seconds to stir until melted and smooth. Stir in corn syrup, then let cool and thicken just a bit. Spoon over cupcakes and let set for just a few minutes, then top with an Oreo witch hat
