Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cupcakes

What’s better than curling up on the sofa with a peppermint hot chocolate during the holidays? How about curling up with a Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cupcake!

Chocolate cupcakes dipped in ganache topped peppermint whipped cream

This was the first time I’ve ever made ganache. It was very easy and the flavor was amazing!

Pouring the hot cream over the chocolate chips

Stirring/Melting the chocolate chips

Finished Ganache - so shiny and delicious!

Dipping the Cupcakes in the Ganache

Dipped Cupcake vs. Non Dipped Cupcake - I vote for #1!

Look at those beauties!

Oh ya, I made some carrot cake cupcakes with vanilla icing too :). People loved that the noses are actually carrots!

Ready for delivery!
