2/3 c dark chocolate chips
1 1/2 c heavy cream, divided
12 chocolate cups or make your own
3 T instant vanilla pudding mix
1/4 c confectioners’ sugar
1/4 c caramel sauce
1/4 c crushed peanuts
Add chocolate chips to a medium bowl and set aside. Add 1/2 c heavy cream to a small saucepan and bring just to a simmer, remove from heat and pour over chocolate chips and let set for 5 min, DO NOT STIR before time is up. Once time has passed, whisk the chocolate and cream until a thick shiny ganache forms, place in the fridge for 10 – 15 min to cool. Pour or pipe ganache into the chocolate cups, make sure ganache is cool enough that it won’t melt the cups, but warm enough that it can still be worked with. In a large bowl or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, whip the heavy cream, pudding mix, and confectioners sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 – 3 min. Pipe frosting onto ganache filled cups and top with caramel drizzle and crushed peanuts. Keep chilled if not serving immediately. Serves: 12.
