Instructions

  1. Chocolate Ganache:
  2. In a small saucepan, heat cream and corn syrup 2-3 minutes, do not let it come to a rolling boil.

  4. S’mores Cupcakes:
  5. Preheat the oven to 350º Fahrenheit.
  6. Line 18 muffin tins with paper liners.
  7. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, buttermilk, Greek yogurt, canola oil, and vanilla until smooth. Add the flour, sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix until smooth. Add the hot coffee or water and mix until combined.
  8. Pour the batter and fill cupcake liners 1/3 of the way up. Place 2-3 mini marshmallows over batter and continue to pour remaining batter no more than ¾ full.
  9. Bake 15-18 minutes, until a cake tester or tooth-pick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove and let cool completely.
