I love cupcakes. I love chocolate ganache. And I love anything butterscotch. When I saw this recipe while I was following The Cupcakery’s blog, I knew that I had to bake them. They were really yummy. I did not bake the chocolate version because I knew that the golden vanilla cupcakes would taste the best. Golden vanilla cupcakes topped with chocolate ganache and a butterscotch drizzle? A heavenly combination 🙂
Vanilla Cupcakes with Chocolate Butterscotch Ganache
You can use any recipe for vanilla cupcakes – for this recipe I used a butter golden box mix.
Bake cupcakes according to box mix directions or recipe instructions if homemade. Let cupcakes cool completely after baking.
12 oz. package chocolate chips
6 tbsp heavy whipping cream
4 tbsp unsalted butter
Combine cream and butter in a double boiler at a simmer.
Mix in the chocolate chips.
Stir until smooth.
Spread on top of the cooled cupcakes.
Follow the same directions for the chocolate ganache, except use a 12 oz. bag of butterscotch chips instead.
Drizzle over the chocolate ganache.
